What is good about that???  We already have a nonstandard keyword
for this functionality: MOVE ALL.  There is no reason to invent another

I tend to agree with Hiroshi that it's a bad idea to add a standard
keyword to represent not-quite-standard behavior.  MOVE ALL is our
historical spelling for this functionality, and adding MOVE LAST is
not really bringing anything to the party.
