Re copy/move improvements. This encompasses a few separate things.
One of them is the multi-target copy/move; this is pretty
straightforward and should be mentioned in the release notes as a
(minor) new capability.

The bigger question in my mind is the copy-on-update thing.
Specifically, there's a start towards this in 1.5, and the server-side
implementation works pretty well, but the wc/client side of things is
a little iffier. I think it is worth doing the "feature evaluation"
on this, specifically to decide whether or not it's in good enough
shape that it's even worth mentioning in the release notes at all, vs
just considering as a minor technical detail for CHANGES.
