Well, we're not really using a formal voting system for that, we just
watch people's posts and use our judgement.

That's probably going to be Post-1.0, as the issue says. It's not
that it's _so_ hard to do, but it's one of hundreds of
non-showstoppers, and we have focus on the big stuff for 1.0.

You copied a file from "/somedirectory" to "/", and then tried to
check out the file alone. The fact that the checkout failed has
nothing to do with how many times the file has been copied, rather,
it's because checking out a single file doesn't work :-).

Well, sure. Checkouts of directories work fine.
