Redirect suppression is working now, and the talk page is moved by default (an option to avoid moving it exists, though). Not sure about the other two.

I dont see subpage support in movepages. I think adding it might solve T117909: Mass rename/move of pages?, and be useful for https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/2015_Community_Wishlist_Survey/Special_pages#Normalize_Special:_pages_for_batch_delete.2Fundelete_and_batch_moves .

We could also have special code to support "subpage" moving of Wikisource's ProofreadPage Index: pages , which requires also moving the associated names in the Page: namespace.

This would be a reasonable medium difficulty Google-Code-In-2015 task; I write it up if someone is interested in co-mentoring it.
