Well, I had been readign through the threads that were linked to from this
issue, but I didn't see this mail. This was a good analyzes.

My current plan is to remove the make_child semantics from copy/move,
making it fail if the destination exists. This is what you propose, except
for the overwrite flag. I'm also not doing the create parents stuff.
That's another issue.

Then create a compat wrapper that implements the create_child semantics on
top of the new API and change the CL client to do the same. That's it for
now. The benefit is to make the destination URL deterministic.

Thanks,
//Peter
