const Usage = `gomvpkg: moves a package, updating import declarations
gomvpkg -from <path> -to <path> [-vcs_mv_cmd <template>]
-from specifies the import path of the package to be moved
-to specifies the destination import path
-vcs_mv_cmd specifies a shell command to inform the version control system of a
directory move. The argument is a template using the syntax of the
text/template package. It has two fields: Src and Dst, the absolute
paths of the directories.
For example: "git mv {{.Src}} {{.Dst}}"
gomvpkg determines the set of packages that might be affected, including all
packages importing the 'from' package and any of its subpackages. It will move
the 'from' package and all its subpackages to the destination path and update all
imports of those packages to point to its new import path.
gomvpkg rejects moves in which a package already exists at the destination import
path, or in which a directory already exists at the location the package would be
moved to.
gomvpkg will not always be able to rename imports when a package's name is changed.
Import statements may want further cleanup.
gomvpkg's behavior is not defined if any of the packages to be moved are
imported using dot imports.
% gomvpkg -from myproject/foo -to myproject/bar
Move the package with import path "myproject/foo" to the new path
% gomvpkg -from myproject/foo -to myproject/bar -vcs_mv_cmd "git mv {{.Src}} {{.Dst}}"
Move the package with import path "myproject/foo" to the new path
"myproject/bar" using "git mv" to execute the directory move.
