Re: svn copy question (Is it always 'with history'?)

History is preserved in all cases. A WC->WC or URL->WC copy is more
expensive than a URL->URL copy because the file has to be physically
copied inside the working copy (or downloaded from the server), but
they don't involve more repository overhead. I think a WC->URL copy is
as cheap as a URL->URL copy as long as there are no local changes in
the working copy. If there are local changes in the working copy,
those would have to be transmitted to the server. I'm not 100%
positive on the WC->URL copy, though, so if I'm wrong somebody please
chime in and correct me.
