Ah. Well, if you're talking about WC-NG, then we can easily validate
the UUID each time we connect. The repository is going to send us the
UUID in the very first response. We can always double-check right

(sounds like a nice TODO)

In any case, I'm not quite sure what scenario you're talking about
here. The original point was "are these the same repository?" And for
the case where we merge/copy nodes into a working copy, we record the
copyfrom info, but that doesn't survive commit-time. So... I'm not
quite seeing the problem here. Help?
