exactly. What were we talking about again? ;)

No, of course not. But it remains untouched all the while that local mods,
including merges, get tossed around in the working copy. There's one
certainty: blow away op_depth>0 and you're back to upstream.
I don't really know what that certainty is good for, and it seems there is
no performance penalty with keeping moved-to in op_depth==0. FWIW the new
certainty goes: blow away all op_depth>0 and set all moved-to to NULL...
While it's only us two arguing and there's no general uproar, I'd say we're
done here. (Y)our patch is good.
