A copy that happens in rN is never from rN, but from some revision
before N. That is, the "copyfrom source revision" must be less than
N. So there shouldn't be a problem here, even if your parser works in
the most natural (but still correct) way.

The copyfrom source revision is present in 'svn log -v' output and
'svn log --xml'. Is it not available in 'svnlook log'?
