No, you would need to "touch" every row in each table to force that to
happen (and make sure that the standard_conflict was "source"). Which
would be very costly. A better way would be to create a fullcopy sync
from the good to the rebuilt, and then kick that sync off one-time to
populate the tables on the second database. And then disable that sync,
for safety reasons.
