no. old branch certificates are immutable. I mean, you can delete them, but they have signatures; they can't be changed if you want the signature to check out. you can however pick a new branch name and mark all the historical states as being in some new branch. in theory we could write a command to do this.

Doing this would probably be good for corporate stuff too. At least once here, we've changed all our Java classpaths from to de.foobar.blag as a result of repositioning a product as being not for a specific customer, but a general product of our company. Company name changes would result in similar things. While it's arguable about whether changing these classpaths is a sensible use of time, once the Powers That Be have said it's happening, it's happening. If the Java classpaths change, it'd sure be inconvenient to have the old classpaths still in monotone...
