Bill and Branko,

Hold on a sec, guys. Here's my fundamental problem with combining
predecessor-history with copy-history: they're different things.
There's definitely a difference between *changing* a file and
*copying* a file. In one case, you create a successor, in another
case, you have a copy with history. These are distinct events, and I
don't see why we should toss this distinction.
