If you have lang/abc version 1.0, version 1.2, version 1.3 and then
suddenly version 2.0 comes up, you repocopy lang/abc to lang/abc1
and continue with version 2.0 in lang/abc. That's when you need it
in MOVED, after all the name of the directory of the latest version
of 1.x is there.

If you already have lang/abc10, lang/abc12 and lang/abc13, and then
suddenly version 2.0 comes up, you need to repocopy and but don't
need to put something in MOVED.

At least that's my impression about it.
