Why is the ancestor_revision still necessary? Initially, we were saying that
parameter only has meaning when ancestor_path is present. If you're saying
it stays, then it also seems to imply that it has meaning outside of the
presence of ancestor_path.

???

I like my set_revision() and copyfrom_* naming better. Much clearer. I have
no idea on the state/semantics of these ancestor_* things now. Especially if
you toss one and not the other :-(
