No, the merge info for the "copy destination" path in the WC won't
include the (history traced) list of revisions from when it first
appeared at that path until "now" unless we contact the repository.
In fact, the path is likely to include only merge info from local
modifications (e.g. merges), as most revisions will (hopefully) have
been elided into its parent directory.
