I prefer method 2 for its simplicity, but it makes it a right
bugger to track down why something was changed before the move.
You're wholly dependent on a) the person who did it correctly
specifying the full and correct path for old/, and b)
remembering to look at the log for rev 1.1 to find out from
whence the file came.

So, on the whole, I prefer method 1.
