Many of these references can be fixed up. We are going to be adding an
offset (i.e., if Subversion is imported when the ASF repository is
already at rev N, then just add N to every rev reference). So in our
log messages and bug comments, we can probably fix this up in a mostly
automated way. I know we can for the log messages; I assume that for
the bug exports we can too.

There will still be references out there that are wrong, but at least
the fix will always be clear: add N and you've got the new revnum.
