Yeah, I guess you did this relatively recently (Jan 29, 2007). However,
svn-tweak-author.py won't catch the case of mapping/rewriting usernames
before it hits mod_authz_svn and/or mod_dav_svn, which is the primary
purpose for mod_authrewrite (see the comments in the source). If you want
to change svn:author historically and change your authz conf file, then
your script does the trick. mod_authrewrite lets you rewrite usernames
without having to change svn:author historically, change your authz conf
file, or install a commit hook. It can also normalize usernames to all
lower or upper case before it hits the authz_svn or dav layers.
