Yes.  I've used this in the past to reorganise project directories.
It's a good idea to make sure all your users know this is going to
happen, though, so that they can check in any changes to the old file
versions before you move them :-).

I'm not quite sure how the client handles the move.  To be ultra-safe, I
asked users to delete the project in their sandboxes and check it out
again.  I suspect this is overkill, but I wanted to be absolutely sure
there were no oddities left in the sandboxes.  No doubt others on this
list will be able to give you more information!
