Wha? Why? Recreating all of our WCs is certainly no fun.

Will updates fail gracefully - or are you keeping the UUID the same?

I'm also not clear - is the expectation that everyone upgrading to 1.5
will have to throw away their WCs when the repository is upgraded, or
is there some mess you're wanting cleaned up internally to our
repository? If it's the latter, is this really necessary? I'm
guessing the only reason that we'd need to checkout is that you've
renumbered/collapsed revisions which seems odd... -- justin
