Re: svn cross-repo copy loses svn:executable *and* leaves the working dir inconsistent

Huh. http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.ref.svn.c.copy.html
actually has a Note:
"You can only copy files within a single repository. Subversion does
not support cross-repository copying."

I guess that means that the bug is that it doesn't check uuids and
actually *enforce* this; I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd be
surprised to learn of this constraint - especially since merge doesn't
have such a warning (and in fact cross-repo cherry-picking with svn
merge is actually kind of important...)
