Yeah.  I think this is a bug and "MOVE 0" ought to be a no-op ... but
changing it requires a different parsetree representation for MOVE ALL,
which is tedious enough that it hasn't gotten done yet.

It should be documented as behavior that is likely to change.  Also,
I believe FETCH 0 has the same issue.
