Hmm, good point, perhaps we should just move.

I've had in my head for a while a vague plan of getting darcsden feature
compatible with the existing roundup issue/patch tracker, and then
moving everything. But actually I can't think of an obvious reason not
to move the master repos now. Perhaps there is one and I just forgot it.

I think there is a posthook somewhere that does some stuff like closing
roundup tickets, we might need to check on that.

Personally I think it should be extremely rare that we rewrite history
on the official repos. Once a year utter screwup sort of thing, if that.

FWIW I can't find any record of having it, so I either lost it or never
had it.
