Well, I was quite aware that it is different from a code point
of view -- what I was trying to say is that it feels like a transform
tool from a *functional* point of view.  Moving feels to me like it
should group logically with operations like Rotating and Flipping.
After all, isn't Rotating just a freer kind of Moving? This may just 
be my math background coming through, but that's the way it feels 
intuitively to me that it ought to be grouped.
