I don't think it's possible to do it cleanly.  If I recall correctly
(this is going from memory) if you do that, you lose the automatic
revision merge tracking.  You'll  still be able to merge from that
branch, but afterwards you'll always have to do all merges with manual
revision ids.

There may be a trick to do this without creating manual (and
error-prone) work afterwards, but I don't  know of it.

Cheers,
