Doing it right at the end of branch-to-trunk merges for a release (which
is where we are right now, just after merges from Graphite) is probably
the optimal timing in terms of minimising the amount of branches that will
need fixing up. The problem is doing it without warning or consensus.
But I think hastily removing SVN revisions (so breaking all subsequent
checkouts of trunk) is much worse than hastily checking in such a bulk
