I think we can do this without a grand wc conversion.

The format currently in .svn/entries is instantly distinguishable from
the format we want in the future. Thus, the conversion function that
*reads* .svn/entries timestamps merely needs some compatibility code
for a while (a few months, whatever). The writers, of course, would
just start using the new format as soon as the two-format-accepting
reader is in place.
