So, I don't really feel strongly about where we store UUIDs. But I
don't want to see us designing a table designed to accomodate
information about *other* repositories before we know that it's
necessary and how it will be used.

(I'm open to being convinced that we do need to store information about
other repositories, but right now it sounds like a bad idea. And, I'm
not saying that we should never support cross-repository copy history;
I'm just not convinced that you need to know anything about the other
repositories in order to do it.)
