I understand.  It is always wise to have a safety fallback position.  On
the other hand, this is a VCS so deleting the files doesn't mean they go
away, just that you can't use them without delving into the project

Now that we have a CLI2 snapshot in the Maven repository, I will
progress looking to see if it solves the problems of CLI 1.0 and CLI
1.1, but it will be next week I'm afraid.

Unfortunately, Bazaar is failing to get a branch as there appears to be
an inconsistency in the Subversion repository at r661567.   Jelmer
Vernooij (the bzr-svn developer) is aware of this and is going to take a
look at it as soon as he can.

I guess I could try a Git clone in the interim, but I bet even it would
take 10 hours or more to get a clone, and anyway Git is horrible to use
compared to Bazaar -- at least for me.  Bazaar is so much nicer to use
for me, for the way I work.

If Jelmer things fixing bzr-svn to deal with the problem in the
Subversion repository is going to take a while, I will just export the
Subversion directories and create a new Bazaar branch without the
previous history.
