SourceTree: How can I copy folders or multi-selected files to another folder in the same working copy?

Copying one file at a time is possible but very time consuming and annoying.

What I do for larger reorgs is do all the actual moving in Finder, then use Add/Remove button in SourceTree, this is the most natural approach.

I guess If you know more about HG's tracking of changes then this is natural. I have moved from SVN to Hg recently. Operating on files directly in the filesystem rather than via the RCS is anathema in SVN because you lose the file history. Apparently this is not the case in Hg.
