i'd say that we always dump the UUID when dumping revision zero of a
repository, and provide an svnadmin command to allow setting it. that
way we minimize the foot-shooting potential. people won't accidentally
screw up their working copies by accidentally changing their
repository's UUID, and for those (rare as far as i can see) situations
where one wants to change it you have the ability to.
