Hmm, I'd normally suggest replacing the working copy with the 3.1
source tree, then doing $ monotone ls unknown | xargs monotone add
  $ monotone ls missing | xargs monotone drop
but you may not have "xargs" available on Win32.  The next release of
monotone will let you say "--xargs=-" in this situation to get the
same effect, but 0.17 doesn't have that.  I dunno a better way to
script things on Win32.

This of course still won't track renames, but such is life.
