Oh yeah. That applied cleanly. And for what it's worth, "well done"
to you.

But now (and here is where you can start hating me for not thinking of
this earlier) I have a fear about the algorith. Well, not the
algorithm -- it's the fact that this command will be reading the
entire 'representations' table, and all the strings dangling off those
representations, in a single Berkeley DB transaction. On any
decently-sized repository, I have a feeling this operation will fail
to complete, instead dying due to a lack of available locks.

How big a dataset have you been testing this patch on? My fears may
turn out to be irrational, but something nagging at the back of my
mind warns me of otherwise.
