Ideally within that timeframe.. haven't had a lot of time to work on it 
though (pulled off for other stuff... unfortunately there's only one of 
me).  It need to get back to it to clean up the current code.

Checkout the entire sandbox containing both directories, rename the file 
(thus moving it) and make sure you commit both directories.  OTOH I 
wouldn't want to do it on a production repository even then just in case 
(the dependency between directories is partly what 2.6 removes.. thus 
making renames 'safe').

The other solutions suggested sound better in the short term.  By the 
time 2.6 is ready if course this will be very simple... it'll just be a 
straight rename.
