The question is whether old loaders will choke if they see the new
UUID header -- and they do, right?

However, our policy about ignoring unrecognized headers is official,
as I recall. So now that we have a repos-headers block, as well as
revision headers blocks, we can add new repos headers with impunity --
assuming the *current* code knows to ignore unknown headers. (Does
it?)
