I'm not sure what is wrong with:


If you just want mapserver it is as easy as:

svn checkout mapserver

The msautotest is directly associated with a version so I'm loath to
recreate the whole version hierarchy.

I'd add that it is substantially harder to track back through revisions
through a move operation, so I wouldn't want to restructure things without
a fairly compelling reason.
