Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Ah, I see now. Manipulating UUIDs could be done with "set-gi", whereas
there is no counterpart for obliterating the bitmap.

I had been thinking of doing something gory with dump-md + restore-md,
anyway (not that I'd heartily recommend trying this kind of thing). Out
of curiosity, though: Is that technically feasible?
