I disagree. Long ago, and for unrelated reasons, I asked if we
could change this behavior. To me, a double delete is clearly a
conflict. You can't delete what ain't. Furthermore, it has cost
me real time in trying to explain to poor lusers why there are
empty revisions with their name on them in our repositories.

For whatever reason, it's rather popular around here to delete a
file one of your co-workers has already deleted it. The result
is an empty revision.
