You still have problems describing "this was copied from rev 500", unless
you explicitly provide some way to refer to things not in your dumped data.

Hmm... I guess you could provide a full text, and the "copied" bit is simply
some metadata that can be used (if rev 500 exists), or ignored (if you're
loading as rev 1). For "exterior refs" like this, you'd probably want an MD5
or SHA1 checksum to ensure that you're referring to the correct thing.

[ personally, I still think it is rather bogus :-) ]
