In fact I tried this at the beginning, it didn't work for me,
svnsync complained "svnsync: Malformed URL for repository".
I use svnsync v1.4.4 (r25188) distributed by Ubuntu 7.10.
(see http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?listName=users&msgNo=77710)

I checked svn 1.5.0 beta1 on Windows just now, it surprised
me `svn ps` did work but `svn pe` didn't! Then I realize
the cause is Vim appends an newline character to the <NEW_SOURCE_URL>
when I use `svn pe`, stupid mistake:-(

Thank you very much! I'll send a copy to svn-dev mail list too, hope somebody
there can add the solution to the FAQ or even better add a 'relocate' sub command
to svnsync.

Best regards,

Liu Yubao
