In light of our vision for the future regarding the pristine cache, and the
seeming flakiness of the special-case code added to handle copies during
update, should we kill that feature? I've never been convinced that it was
truly beneficial as written anyway -- it seems to just sorta throws "what
ifs" across the wire and then burdens the client with verification and
handling before falling back to doing what it has always done for non-copied
files.
