Well, so far I've only seen you cite you some consensus that some
developers came to somewhen, but I wonder why the same developers don't
seem to care enought to aid to this discussion again - well, probably it's
really not worth it. Plus, you were not able to tell me any pressing
problems for the "copies" approach so gar - no, sorting for a number of
floppies isn't one (man tsort).

But if you want to go the "copies" way, that's fine with me - I don't care
enough if it works for now.
