Implicitly severable WCs have to go. Especially after implementing
Merge Tracking, I am convinced that we need centralized meta data
storage for the WC (in the spirit of Dave Anderson's "Another working
copy library" email). We can certainly provide an explicit
sub-command to break off portions of the WC, maintaining the feature
desired by Justin.
