If you have not synced your database to somewhere else:

monotone db execute "DELETE FROM revision_certs WHERE id = 'W' AND name
= 'branch';"
monotone cert W branch prj.working

If you have synced your database to somewhere else:

There's not really a good way. The closest is:

"monotone disapprove W -b prj.release"
Merge branch prj.release .

but I think it won't be happy when you eventually do decide to merge a
decendant of W into the release branch.
