Agree with Jim's algorithm. Don't forget to inculde the commit's
author in the above list of properties, too. (I'm sure the omission
was accidental, I just wanted to mention it for completeness.)

Actually, cvs2cl doesn't ignore whitespace differences in the log
messages when discovering commits, nor (IMHO) should cvs2svn, since
there's no way for the log message to differ by whitespace (or by
anything else) within a single commit.
