Re: WARNING: WC format bumped to 19: single-DB enabled: TAKE CARE

Improvements to bump-to-19.py are flying in... get the latest version
before you use it.

If it fails in the "deleting ..." phase, it's done the migration work so
you should be able to recover simply by deleting all remaining .svn dirs
manually (carefully avoiding the root one of course.)
