You missed the point. If the user wants to "move" a label that can
be allowed or disallowed with a hook script I suppose, but the point
is that the label would still be marking the same line of development
and could not possibly mark anything else. There would be no need
for --stop-on-copy to dig out the details in a roundabout way. It
would be a much cleaner labeling process.
