Comment(by davidsarah):

 ''But if you copy with {{{--mutable}}}, I think we should create mutable
 dirnodes with immutable files. A separate flag (maybe {{{--mutable-
 files}}}) could be used if you really do want to turn all of your
 immutable files into mutable ones.''

 That makes sense to me. But maybe the first option should be {{{--mutable-
 dirs}}}, since it isn't quite the inverse of {{{--immutable}}}. If you use
 {{{--mutable}}} then it should print a help text explaining the difference
 between {{{--mutable-dirs}}} and {{{--mutable-files}}}.
