This was a simple case with no branches and distinct log messages. It
gives output like this:

     committing: Wed Jul 3 21:02:50 2002, over 193 seconds
         changing 1.13 : /reps/form/reps.fmb
         changing 1.14 : /reps/form/logs.fmb
         changing 1.15 : /reps/form/logs.fmb
         (skipped; dry run enabled)

And in cvs2svn-data.revs, those two revisions have different checksums:

     3d23ad8b c4b3020b30299a53a468809e9ad7e6e761a74b7b C 1.15
     3d23acca 759967f3f3ce5a6d5a6604897c4fb5b63717d889 C 1.14

I can pull data from the other cvs2svn-data.* files. Afraid I don't
really understand the significance of all the slightly-different files.
