Yes, that is the procedure I am talking about. It is very invasive, because it necessitates all users throwing away all working copies and checking them out again, means all old revision numbers (e.g. that have been recorded in issue tracker ticket notes, documentation, etc.) are no longer accurate, and does not necessarily result in space savings in the repository, which is what many people are looking for when they consider this procedure. (It may even increase the repository's size.)
