C-Mike, if that was a task requiring a significant amount of thought and craft, you did write a script to do it, and have kept that script, haven't you? Even if lots of the stuff in it is specific to the particular circumstances, I bet lots of people are going to be asking for help with doing a very similar thing to their own repositories. Perhaps you could annotate the script with reasons for the various steps, and check it in to "examples/" or post it here. (You needn't spend time on generalising it; someone else can do that later.)

Just a thought, not something that I need - yet.
