Wait... did you say a few message ago that you don't think a branch is a branch, because when you delete the branch the history of the path is still in the repo? That's what your example seemed to show. I think people want obiliterate to deal with that issue. You can delete any path and still see it in the history if you ask for it.. Isn't keeping that history the whole point?
