I think we will wind up creating branches instead.

The purpose of a copy node is to preserve the information about a
copy. (Not that we have a way for clients to get at that information
yet.) It remains the case that two different files (foo/xxx and
bar/xxx, if foo was copied to bar) might live in the same node. The
information about what happened should still be there if you look hard
