The first hit when I googled "how to move a file using python" was
which in turn suggests the use of:
os.rename() or shutil.move()
depending on whether you need only to rename or to actually move a file.
(The unix mv utility is used to do both but the 'twofor' is not 
available in Python to my knowledge.)
Don't forget to
import os
import shutil
depending on your needs.
