I also thought of this file as a safeguard that makes it impossible to use
1.0-1.1 clients on newer working copies, as they would recognize the new
working copy as incompatible..

Before the next WC design materialized, I even assumed it would be a
candidate as only left over in the administrative directory when the real
administrative area was moved outside the working copy for exactly this

Write once, never touch later, but make sure older versions recognize this
directory as an incompatible working copy that they shouldn't change.

I think that algorithm even worked for 1.6 before this change.
