It does contain code to rename the directories (which seemed to work when I
tested it).  Perhaps this didn't work correctly on your tree, but note that
it doesn't do any renaming until the very end (after it's modified all the
files); did you wait until it finished?

I'll look and see if I see any obvious bugs.

It deletes cached revisions intentionally to avoid having to deal with that
case, on the theory that they're pretty easy to recreate.  I can look at
processing them, but it's probably easier for you to just save a list of
cached revisions and recreate them after your done.  For instance, here's a
little shell blurb to get a list of cached revisions:

   tla abrowse --versions | grep -e '--.*--' | xargs -n1 tla cachedrevs

[note: uses the default archive]

80% of success is just showing up.  --Woody Allen
