I would have thought so, but the man pages didn't mention it. I haven't
use mv in ages. Makes sense that it would work, though. Moving/renaming
a file would just change the name, not the inode number, which is the
real key to *nix file systems.
Ashley said it, a directory is a file. But more, when you do a mv on
a file, it don't rename. If the target is in the same filesystem, mv do
a hard link on the source file, then unlink the original name. If you
move accross filesystem, mv do a copy of the directory.
If you don't believe me, get the source.
