If the actions remain intuitive when translated from working copies to
repositories, and so long as we don't wind up with nasty syntax
modifications, then yeah, I see no reason not to expand functionality
in that way. That said, this type of coverage is not to be considered
anything but a convenience for the user -- most definitely not a 1.0
(shoot, or even a 2.0) requirement, in my opinion.
