The sync feature would be a requirement because the first
time estimation would be ~2 weeks to convert our repository
without branches. (currently using 5 seconds for some files)
IMHO, I dont think that this is so expensive, if --sync only
extends the last dump files. (only a rerun of the pass 1-5, and
appends the new commits)

Read it and got the answer :)
- The book do not show the capability of a svn merge tag1 tag2 for
  repeated merges like cvs.
- Is svn resolve also necessary if all conflict markers in a text file
  are removed?
