Dear Marcus,

I have not claimed that... One basic 280-line perl script cannot do much
more than 5000 lines of python classes and scripts.

It is less powerfull but much simpler, IMVH and biased O.

Moreover, the approach is quite different.

The dumptool is a swiss knive for handling dumps, and it is up to you
to script around or use it for your purpose. The merge-repos stuff
is a basic mono-target tool, which is only useful for one job, but is
simpler to use.

An small added feature of the perl script is the ability to mark the
source of the revision in the merged repository, and I wanted that.

If I had known that dvndumptool existed, I would have done with it and not
bother to develop a script, but once available, and for my purpose, the
perl script can do in one command what would required many manual
"svnadmin dump" + svndumpfilter + svndumptool + "svnadmin load".
