This doesn't seem right. It seems like you'd be changing the semantics
of the property. Revisions 1-N have in fact been merged, albeit trivially.

If you just need to avoid an svn call, why not instead record the first
revision "N" explicitly as an additional bit of information.

Either way, you'll need compatibility and upgrade code, but the latter
approach seems cleaner and more consistent.
