This is also when you rename the upstream Subversion hostname or reset
the URL for it altogether, so that old and broken working copies are
reported as completely absent. It helps prevent people from doing an
"svn switch" and expecting the histories to be consistent, and lets
them know that the old repository is unusaable: a new working copy
should be checked out.
