Yep. But that's not a page that people visit every day. I'll push for
this to be brought to people's attention in a more obvious way.

However back to subversion: I understand why it's difficult to handle
this case when new stuff is imported. Would it be possible to instead
provide a tool that can be run on a subversion repository to *rebuild*
the indexes properly? ie something that could be run after an import, or
after someone has fudged dates associated with files for some other
purpose?

Regards,

Simon
