I like {file_copies_always}, or maybe {filecopies_always}, which
nudges it closer to normal hg "no underscores" usage, while leaving in
one underscore which maybe sort-of hints that the "always" is weird.
Specifically, it's not about content, but about behaviour: this is a
hack for backwards compatibility.  Documenting this concisely will be
tricky!
