I think it's reasonable to hang something like this off of
rev 0 properties, and it will be less work to do it this way
than ripple the changes through all the RA implementations.

Moving past where the UUIDs are stored in the repository,
should they be stored in the WC? I think so, since
svn switch --relocate needs to work when the original URL
is no longer valid.

It probably makes sense, then, to store the UUID associated
with every repository reference; i.e. every URL in the entries-file.
I think this will be necessary and sufficient. Am I overlooking
anything?
