Moving partition to an overlapping position

I realize this probably a FAQ, but the ml archive is a bit tedious to
navigate because of all the spam, and I couldn't find this answered so...

Example: hde1: 0-10GB, hde2: 10GB-120GB

I would like to delete remove hde1 and move hde2 to 0-110GB. (And later
resize it to span the remaining 10GB at the end of the disk - since resizing
the beginning of the partition is not supported.)

(parted) move 2 32kB 110GB                                                      
Error: Can't move a partition onto itself.  Try using resize, perhaps?    

What I don't perfectly understand is why this is so hard to implement. Isn't
this just a case of copying the 110GB in 10GB (or smaller) chunks towards
the beginning of the disk? I'm probably missing something, right?
