Re: Stage 1 of true rename support.

Just curious: if svn gets true rename support, would that imply that
it could, in effect, implement "hard links" in the repository? Put
another way, would it be possible (even if it's a bad idea) to have a
single item in the repository have two different names? That way
editing one would affect the other.

I don't actually know if this is a good idea, even if it's possible; I
just thought of it because Visual SourceSafe has a similar feature.
