Well, not really fair enough.  I just looked at the change that Chris
made.  It has a bug
that would be caught by your test if anyone tried to port repozo to
Python 3.  More
importantly, Chris' change touches non-trivial code that isn't
exercised by your test.
It *looks* OK  (aside from the minor bug).  We are doing users a
serious disservice
giving  them such an important tool with minimal tests and no automated tests.

I'm going to back out these changes.  If someone really cares about
repozo in the
slightest, they'll at least convert the existing manual test into an
automated test.
I'm pretty sure that this is a straightforward project. With an
automated version of the
manual test,  I'd be comfortable reapplying Chris' change.

Is anyone willing to convert the manual test to an automated one?
