bug#35926: mv: more informative overwrite prompt

This is a wishlist item.

Currently, the following happens:

$ touch baa moo
$ mv -i moo baa
mv: overwrite 'baa'?

I request that the prompt also provide the source path such as in:

mv: overwrite 'baa' with 'moo'?

This is especially useful in the case of executing scripts where a
loop is processing many moves, and one cannot know the source file by
reading the previous line of the session.
