Re: command to verify move history

Are you implying that, for a move to carry history, the delete and add
operations have to be committed at the same time? If a "move" is just a
delete+add, with the add getting extra metadata, why can't you commit
the delete and the add in separate revisions?

I'm guessing what you meant is that one can *infer* a move as
distinguished from a copy if there was a deletion of the original files
in the same revision.
