Re: issue 3899 (copying conflict victims)

Having cleared up the confusion over what info becomes invalid, the
overall answer seems clear to me:

A tree conflict applies to a path.

Think first of the simpler case: a file. If I copy the (local, working)
file to another name or to another directory, the tree conflict (info)
should not be copied; just the current working version of the file
should be copied. If I delete the file, strictly speaking the tree
conflict (info) should remain, although, as a high-level convenience, we
might want to automatically resolve the conflict at the same time. If I
move the file, the tree conflict (info) should stay where it was.

Now for a directory, the same applies, if I'm operating directly on it.

Finally, if I attempt to copy/delete/move a parent directory of the tree
conflict victim, then what? Gotta run now; will come back and think
about this case later.
