I intended no offense.  I don't know what people don't know.

Please do.  I don't know exactly what Andreas plans to do, but he has told
me what he needs to do it (that is, a map of existing hashes to new ones).
and I will try to generate that.

Another alternative, possibly simpler, is that you could push the branch to
the public Bazaar repository and let me know you have done so.  Then it
would get converted automatically the next time I do a lift.

Is there any reason not to do things that way?
