Excuse me, I misspoke a bit here. There *is* a way the editor could
deduce it -- by seeing what the next editor call is after a
replace_foo() or add_foo(), and using that to figure out whether
set_target_revision() has or hasn't been called since replace/add.
But that would be really going through contortions to deduce something
it could just have handed to it.
