I think Mike was planning to do this for the real repository with the
goal of giving us the best possible upgrade. Users be damned! They
can hack the code too! Actually, I think he planned on committing the
code to svnsync and #define'ing it out.

At a minimum, we want to strip all of the bogus svn:mergeinfo we
created during the development process.
