In 1.6 when we copy a tree containing deleted=true we mark the copied
node so that it gets deleted upon commit. Are we going to change
that? If we mark the node excluded do we use some additional mark to
indicate delete?

When one tags such a working copy should the organizational mechanism
be included in the tag? I can see arguments for and against. The
current behaviour is not even consistent: exporting is sparse,
wc-to-wc copy is sparse, wc-to-repo copy is not sparse, commit is not

However that's not really an urgent question. How we represent
replaces is more pressing.
