Yeah, I guess if you move it to a separate repo on the svn.python.org
server that might be nice. But it's not a big deal either way.

Sorry, I should've been clearer. I fully intend to complete the
conversion in a few months, say by October 1st or sooner. That would
be between 3.1 and whatever the next release will end up being, I
hope? It's just hard to be very specific at this point.

BTW, I tried my hand at rewriting the revlog for the manifest, as
described in the PEP, and it made the full conversion *much* (as in
70%) smaller. I've also been looking at what branches we should keep
and will ask for definitive feedback on that point soonish.
