Thanks for the confirmation.  I was almost certain there was a 
difference.  That's why I attempted the svn move first, and since I 
couldn't get it to make a good diff, attached the alternate 
-no_svn_remove_add version of the patch so that svn move could be used.

So, Chris Pinkham, it looks like 
mythtv-move_storagegroup_to_libmyth-no_svn_remove_add.patch is the patch 
to use along with the command:

svn move libs/libmythtv/storagegroup.{h,cpp} libs/libmyth

Now, if only I knew why the added files didn't appear in the diff with 
an svn move so I could do it "right" next time.  It's almost like the 
svn add doesn't "take" until a commit or something.
