For GUI clients, it is more about seeing where something was copied
to, which we just do not currently have any good way of providing.

Ultimately, for a given node, I'd like to see its complete history in
the repository, including the changes that happened on all the paths
it was copied to, as well as the revisions in which it was copied.
