Wow, Kamesh is a super-hero! :-)

It means that svn 1.5 clients can now request that copyfrom-args be
sent during updates, and 1.5 servers can oblige the request. What I'm
now working on is making libsvn_wc actually *use* this new update
information intelligently. At the moment, the update-editor just
stupidly does an RA side-fetch of the copyfrom-path. Instead, the
client code needs to try and locate the (possibly edited) file already
in the wc. Stay tuned.

Doh, that sounds like a stupid bug just begging for a test-case!

Argh, are we *still* debating this issue? We already added 'svn
propedit URL' support. I suppose I can understand adding 'svn propdel
URL' support (since we already support 'svn rm URL')... but I'm really
against 'svn propset URL', and the issue claims there's still no
consensus on that. I guess we should at least update the issue's
summary.
