should there be a `--copy` flag to be able to undo `--no-copy` ?

We can add one if there's a need, but mv doesn't have a --clobber option to match its --no-clobber and I'm hoping --no-copy is similar.

personally i always argue against using negative variable names

Yes, I considered calling it "rename_only" instead of "no_copy", but the pull of the --no-copy option's name was too strong. Besides, "rename_only" wasn't quite right either as "mv --no-copy" does more than just renaming (e.g., if the destination is not writeable).

If we can come up with a better name now's a good time to switch. In the meantime I installed the attached coreutils patch.
