I'm sure we could figure something out... the cleanup script does one
thing that is incompatible: it removes (rm) files from each repo if
not in the DB - this assumes it is a symlink. It should be fairly easy
to replace that with a "if symlink, rm, else mv to cleanup"

Can anyone else see anything incompatible here?
