splitting files and splitting hairs

One common use case I find when refactoring is to split one file into a
few. The only RCS I ever used that supports that is Subversion (svn cp
foo.py bar.py; gnuclient foo.py bar.py); but that's far from being my
favorite RCS ;-)
Any ideas how bzr could do that? Off the top of my head (15-second
design), I'd store a new field "descends_from" in the inventory (with
the file_id of the "parent" file).
So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
then they seem improbable, and then, when we
summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
