   I think answering that question is going to be a little bit
   harder than that. Subversion's cheap copies (i.e. only the parent
   is copied) mean that for nodes that aren't modified on
   branches, there is no child-id, the branch/copy still
   refers to the original revision. We could probably look at
   parents and follow them around too to work this out
   (in fact, I think that'd have to be done anyway, otherwise
    the Subversion filesystem would change dramatically).

   In cases where the containing directory is modified, it'll
   still point to the unchanged node if there is no new revision
   of a file made. We'll still need to look at the parents to
   see if a particular file has been linked to another part of
   the directory tree.
