We probably need this feature to implement proper renames. It sounds
like we need the feature to implement obliterate. We know we need the
feature for revision graph-type features.

Regardless what it means for fsfs we need to do it. Implement it with
sqlite and if someone wants a more elegant fsfs-like solution then let
them design and propose it.
