With such a sadistic/masochist argument (it is both of them), we could
also revert to CVS or copying files around just for the sake of knowing
that a tool helps a little...

I have done rcs to svn conversions in the past, I have merged distinct svn
repositories, I already know it may be painful, I also know I have to help
for that, I assure you I am not at all blasé about it, and you really do
not need to remind me these issues by breaking the consistency of the
subversion repository:-)
