Er, no, the whole point of #1975 is that $URL$ needs to be rewritten in
all files, not just the ones which changed as a result of the switch

The trick is to only re-substitute the files which have the offending
keyword in their svn:keywords properties. Doing that efficiently might
require storing the svn:keywords value in the entries file.
