In that respect it would work as long as as you commit each operation
- you do get the log message tied atomically to the change and it
would  be a relatively cheap operation to copy things around to
different paths to represent their states.   But, there are probably
other workflow-control tools that can manage files without making it
completely impossible to administratively delete them.
