Yeah, I'd not paid much attention to it either. Now that I look at it,
ALTER TABLESPACE MOVE seems like a pretty unfortunate choice of naming
all around, because (unless I'm misunderstanding) it doesn't actually
alter any property of the tablespace itself. It might be a bit late
to propose this, but I wonder if some syntax along the lines of
MOVE ALL [ TABLES | INDEXES | ... ] IN TABLESPACE foo TO bar
wouldn't be less confusing. Not sure what we'd use as command tag
for it though (not MOVE, since that's taken).
