I don't think it should pull the new foo. At present "svn cp" fixes the
copyfrom revision and a subsequent "svn up" doesn't change it.

Having update change the copyfrom revision does look like a useful
feature, it's a way to resolve some tree conflicts, but I think we
should try for a full implementation rather than just a few corner
cases.
