Hmm, my thinking was that I wouldn't need any more access than
svn_client is able to attain. Since svn_client is able to obtain full
information about the status of the repository at each revision, plus
revision properties such as dates, couldn't my own program obtain the
same information via svn_ra?

Likewise, as svn_client is able set these things for its commits, it
would seem to be doable.

To be sure, I don't know yet.

My theory, from reading a chapter in the book and dome of the doxygen
material, is that I should be able to obtain a delta and properties
from each given source revision, and should then be able to commit a
revision on the destination side using the same delta and properties.

Now that's only a theory, so if you have to shoot it down, I'll paint
a nice target on it for you :-)

Well, as long as it's not impossible... :-)
