"Replaced" means the item was deleted, and then another item (which
could be identical) has been added at the same path. This could happen
in a single revision by doing something like

1) TSVN->delete foo.c
2) Somehow reinstate the file foo.c
3) TSVN->add foo.c
4) TSVN->commit

The above example would probably be a mistake where the user actually
should have reverted the deletion at step 2.

If the replacment item arrives by means of an svn copy then it will have
different history to the item it replaced - you can confuse yourself on
this one if you like by reading about "peg revisions" in the manuals...
