I remember some sort of allusion to this functionality in the Book, but
not sure if it ever made it into the code, or if there is a plan to do

I guess the functionality I am thinking of would be like the externals,
but rather than just point a directory to another repository the copy
operation would actually copy the head of repos_A to the head of
repos_B for a given dir or file, and then reference all the history for
that object back to the original repos_A....

Does this make sense? Is anyone doing anything like this?
