Hehe I knew it wasn't that simple but I didn't want to scare off a potential
contributor :)

There is most likely a way to do it cleanly with bzr since they always brag
about the fact that they handle renames better than other dvcs. However, it
would need experimentation.. I did try a simple merge like you mentioned and
it was scary so I decided to leave the work to you. :)

Send us an email when you push the code! I listened yesterday to the FLOSS
weekly episode on Ubuntu One[1] featuring Mister Langridge of the LugRadio
fame and I realized how easy I could install it and try the web-sync branch.

For some reason, I was thinking that none of this worked already and so
never bothered to try it.

But now I can't wait!! So as soon as you re-based let me know and I'll test.

Lol, you know what? Yellow is the new black! I wonder if a color will be
enough or if we would need a texture..? Let's experiment. But I'll leave
that to you, I really want editing and sync to work...

Have a good week-end everyone!
