Is that our strongest conviction on this -- "would be better"? I
can't see any trademark issue here.

 'hgsvn' is already taken, and I don't see how the name 'hgsubversion'
is "likely to cause confusion as to the identity of the Subversion
project" or "indicates a greater degree of association between you and
the Subversion project than actually exists" or "implies a designated
successor to Subversion". I don't think anyone is going to look at
that name and think that the software is part of Subversion itself,
officially associated with Subversion, or is a successor to
Subversion. It's got 'hg' in the name, so that pretty much makes it
clear that it's some sort of bridge to a completely different VC
system.
