This also still only reports syncing identical paths with svnsync,
right? ie, you can't sync /trunk/www to the root of a repo with this,
or anything to not-the-root? (And this may commit lots of empty
revisions, just like with authz?)

(These aren't problems, just want to make sure I fully understand.)
