Thanks, that will be extremely useful. One of the things I'm putting effort
into is building a good test suite for the tool; I may well be able to adapt
your tests directly.

I shall do so. Their design ideas may well be interesting, even though I
don't trust their code. I've seem cvs2svn drop far too many weird artifacts
and just plain broken commits in the back history of Subversion repositories.
I don't know if this is due to design problems, implementation bugs, or both.
