Oh, people thought of that. The only problem is that properties are
inherited from one revision to the next, so you'd have to special-case
those properties or lose information. (And would lose information.
If node-rev 100.3 and node-rev 100.4 both say they're copies of rev 12
foo/bar, that *could* be true, or 100.4 *could* be just inheriting
from 100.3.) Unless we do something special.
