I'm having trouble imagining how this could work, while still
maintaining O(1) copies and a small size per revision.

But I think you're right. Dynamic inheritance can have confusing
results in the presence of directory copies. Inheriting starting values
based on the parent is consistent with what filesystems generally
provide (AFS as well as NTFS, assuming you're right about NTFS), and it
hurts less.

(How we handle the versioned-metadata-affecting-past-versions issue, I
really don't know.)
