The answer is no.

Revision numbers will no longer be in a single sequence, which will make
copyfrom revisions incorrect. (and in the case of a
copy-without-modification, can actually mean you are copying the wrong
revision, ending up with erroneous content in the destination of your copy).
Also, if the "add" of a file is missing, subsequent "change" operations
cannot load.

I sort of dropped out of this conversation for a while (sorry, university
life can be busy).
Did it ever get resolved?
