I wrote a script to edit svn:author on each revision in the
repository. It took a few hour or so to run across c. 4500 revisions -
it was so slow mainly because I had to do an LDAP search for each
revision to translate the usernames. However, the length of time
didn't matter because I could leave it unattended, and the repository
could still be used at the same time.
