This, all by itself, seems very unpredictable in the case of non-rename
copies.

If I have a locally-modified file "foo" and I receive an update which
adds "newfoo" copied from foo, I propagate the local mods, and now have
them in two places. But if I check in my local mods before the update
(no conflict), then the modifications are never propagated to newfoo.

If foo and newfoo are in different directories, I might also get
different behavior under your proposal depending on whether I update
from a parent directory which encompasses both foo and newfoo, or from
the directory which only contains newfoo.
