Originally I was trying to do this directory-by-directory basis, but now I'm inclined to do this in a single extremely large patch. There's a risk of doing this that way (in particular, I'm not confident that I can keep the buildbots green or will be able to make them green in a timely manner after committing), but I think that will make downstream repo maintainer's work easier.

FWIW, I was originally nervous and slightly opposed to that, but I now agree with you that a big change is probably the right thing to do.
