So, the "stop on copy/rename" actually works. You can see rev2 which is
*before* the rename.

There's no reliable way to know that when we just fetch the log
messages. Of course, if we could just assume that the server is version
1.2 or higher, then we could. But we also have to deal with pre 1.2
servers (which don't know about the --limit switch of the log command),
and unfortunately there's no way to ask the server for its version.

Yes, because we assume that if there are not as many revisions fetched
as we asked for, then there must be some more of them.

But you're right here: we should fix this. I'll have a look...
