Not movable because you copied from the Xarchiver repo sometime early
and its history, and there's no good way to filter it properly.

Debatable. I'd lean toward yes, but... maybe not.

Does trigger-launcher work? If so, goodies. If not, archive.
There's also a technological problem with all of this -- dumping single
modules is a pain in the ass because svndumpfilter is just broken and
doesn't filter out everything it should. At least, the version we have
on mocha (kinda old, 1.4.something) has this problem. I haven't been
able to find any bugs or mailing list posts on this.
We should probably update svn on mocha anyway; there are a couple nice
features in 1.5.x that might be worthwhile (merge tracking, more
efficient repository format, etc.), but as we saw yesterday, updating
stuff on mocha tends to break things...
Oh, never mind... looks like svn got updated yesterday too. Sigh.
More single-author modules are easier to move because you can manually
fixup the dump file without too much trouble, but other modules are more
