Philip, if it makes you feel any better...

   1) When issue #689 is finished (repos<->wc checksums), such
      corruption will at least be instantly noticed, and not spread
      beyond that working copy.

   2) If we don't supply this command, people *will*, I guarantee it,
      start writing their own scripts to modify the entries file :-).
      We can either pretend it's not going to happen, or we can supply
      the functionality ourselves and thus leave the door open to add
      more safety checks later.

You rock :-).
