Hmmm. But why is that correct? foo3's copyfrom-url is not foo's URL,
it's foo2's (but foo2 doesn't have a URL yet, really, so that's not
quite right either).

I understand that this might make certain operations easier, but I
think we need solid theoretical grounding for any such change. Being
convenient (in some circumstances) is not the same as being correct.
