Change Folder report is in from web API

Our client has a problem, where basically they have over 1600 unused reports and want a good way to move all of these old reports into an unused reports folder.  You cannot do this through apex code or the data loader.  I have also tried this using the Partner API and got an error basically saying that you cannot make changes to the reports.


Does anyone know of a way to basically change what folder a report is in through a Webservice API?


You should be able to do this with the metadata API.  See: http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/api_meta/index.htm
