No, not at all. I'm merely saying that the revprops of rev 0 in the
source repository will get copied to the revprops of some new revision
in the dest repository, when one dumps/loads. And one of those props
is the guid, but it would absolutely useless when not on rev 0 -- just
confusing, likely to make people scratch their heads, that's all.

So would we let it stay? Special case it? I dunno.

Fortunately, it seems like the consensus is not to use a rev 0 prop
anyway, so all is goodness.
