Yes, in the code and in some issues, I believe.

Well, the bugs are about following history, so they'd be present
whether the history was a "copy" or an atomic "rename". (The nature
of the historical traces is the same -- there's an ancestor, and then
a new thing based on that ancestor.)

In other words, no, it's not the copy+delete implementation.
