Re: wc-ng base/working nodes in a copied tree
The tree at copied-here should only have WORKING nodes. No BASE nodes.
If it has BASE nodes, then that is a bug.
The tree is distinguished as a copy because of the copyfrom_*
information at the operation root. All the children have empty
copyfrom_* data. If you make a second copy into that tree, then that
new subtree will have copyfrom_* at its root.
