FWIW, svnsync doesn't have any issues at the moment, it copies the
svn:date revprops along with everything else, and only works if you're
copying the entire repository and you have to start with an empty one,
so there's no chance to get out of order unless your source is out of
order. There will be problems later on if/when someone tries to use
ra_replay to copy part of a tree instead of the whole thing.
