OK, so git annex init, edit the UUID manually and then start to add
data? That would still leave me with Yet One More repo in the repo
list, defeating the initial purpose of re-using UUIDs.

As a hardcore way of getting rid of old repos, would deleting all
occurences of the repo from the logs and then _not_ union-merging, but
merging normally work?
