In theory, the repository layer could say "I see that this item was copied
away and deleted from this path at the same time." In practice, "deleted at
the same time" isn't as easy to detect as we'd like. (I've been doing some
thinking in these parts off and on ... toying with the cost/benefit of
storing an explicit end-of-life marker on a line of history. But I don't
like where the 'cost' part leads me.)
