The new "warning: The depth of this commit is 'empty', but copied dirs ..."

Today I committed the result of a merge, which included mergeinfo change
on ".", but I didn't want to include a file that I have locally modified
for testing purposes, so I explicitly specified "." and the required
target file.

[[[
svn commit -N -m "..." . subversion/mod_dav_svn/mirror.c
svn: warning: The depth of this commit is 'empty', but copied
directories will regardless be committed with depth 'infinity'. You must
remove unwanted children of those directories in a separate commit.
Sending .
Sending subversion/mod_dav_svn/mirror.c
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 1035992.
]]]

I think it would be better if we only issue this warning when the
proposed commit does in fact include a copy, otherwise it's going to be
too much noise.

Thoughts?
