cvs2svn urgently needs a verification tool

We (i.e. the Subversion project) urgently need a tool that can at verify
that the data is correct in trunk and all the tags and branches after a
conversion. It could e.g. run cvs export and svn export and compare the
data for all tags, etc.

Automatic log message checking for each file should also be possible,
but it's not as important, and it's also much harder.

Such a tool would be great for running tests during development, but
also to provide more confidence to users that the data is correct after
a conversion. It's nothing short of a disaster if the tagged code (or
whatever you put in you repositories) is incorrent after a conversion.

Unfortunately cvs2svn does have such bugs now. :-( Maybe we should
make cvs2svn print a banner saying that it should not be used until it
has received more testing.
