Re: What to do about our repository

Well, it looks like of the folks that voiced opinions, this is falling
toward option #3, so that's the route I'm going to take. I will tweak UUIDs
to be different, and I will *not* (at this time, anyway) install hooks that
prevent 1.4 clients from committing.

I'll transmit a followup mail when this is all done.
