      Description

      Moving a working copy path 'A'-->'B' and then moving 'B'-->'A' results in a
      replacement, which makes some sense...except that the WC is effectively unchanged.
      
      For example:
      
      >svn st
      
      >svn up
      Updating '.':
      At revision 10.
      
      >svn move iota iota-moved
      A         iota-moved
      D         iota
      
      >svn move iota-moved iota
      A         iota
      D         iota-moved
      
      >svn st
      R  +    iota
              > swapped places with iota
      
      >svn diff
      
      >svn ci -m "empty commit"
      Replacing      iota
      
      Committed revision 11.
      
      Seems that as we endeavor to make 'svn move' more atomic on the WC side (issue
      #3630) that a scenario like that above should simply result in a WC with no changes.
