I do _not_ recommend we attempt to do the 1688 (one thousand six hundred
eighty-eight) repocopies, even if anyone was insane enough to volunteer
to try to do so.
It would take months to sort through the damage to the depedency tree,
during which time the ports tree would effectively be broken. No matter
how much we tested it first, we would never get them all. And, of course,
we'd have to have the tree frozen to run the regression test, or the test
would become instantly obsolete the second we ran it.
Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
