Move subsites in WSS 3.0 like you would in MOSS 2007

Manage content and structure is a MOSS 2007 feature, but if you were like me trying to figure out a dead simple way to move a site to another URL or location, without backing up, dealing with all the permissions, the answer was in this genius blog: Use STSASM to rename a site to another location.

stsadm -o renameweb -url http://locationofyoursite -newname location/location.

Note, this can only be peformed in the same site collection. Ensure illegal characters are not present in the site move as I saw this morning!
