Copy's better than move because move screws up branches (since it'll still
be patchlevel.h in the 2.2 branch).

If maintaining cvs log continuity isn't important, the cleanest way to do
this is just with cvs add and cvs remove on the main branch; that way one
doesn't have to muck with the repository and the branches are happy.  I
didn't know if there was already a set procedure for dealing with this in
INN, though.
