I am currently doing that locally, once all hints are moved to the
proper OLD/ or PREVIOUS_FORMAT/, I will make a huge commit and then
start adding new hints.
I have not given thought to what to do for the hints that are orphaned.
We could just leave the hint in the place where the hint would normally
be if it is maintained (i.e. in downloads/files for hints in the new
format and downloads/files/PREVIOUS_FORMAT for hints in old format).
There is no need to create a seperate directory coz just because the
hint is not currently maintained does not mean that it is not currently
relevant. In moving them back and forth in cvs, we loose the version
