Thats a known restriction. You can only do any O(1) operation to moving

In the situation that you want to handle blobs this will not be
possible. This is a restriction that I'm willing to deal with.

Having a temporary file system that handles blobs in addition to a large
filesystem that handles blobs might be required in certain situations,
however, than the O(1) operation won't work and we do have a fallback
implementation already anyway.
