New submission from John Rose <john.rose at sun.com>:
Man pages claim that "cp -al" will safely copy repos.
This is not true for the patch directory.
To reproduce, "cp -al" a repo with mq patches.
Make a change in one, do hg qref, and observe the updated patch in the other,
still with two hard links.
