Re: svnsync

Cool. Looks like the props on the destination are:
svn:sync-currently-copying = 1
svn:sync-from-url = <svn url>
svn:sync-from-uuid = <source repo uuid>
svn:sync-last-merged-rev = <whatever rev>

then there's the locking and stuff. So, would it hurt to prepare the
current master for when I switch it to mirror by setting
svn:sync-from-url, svn:sync-from-uuid? I'd probably set the uuids the
same between master and slave to make things more transparent to
users. That hurt anything in svnsync?
