Thanks, but the Justification is not just "Could lead to sync'd
repositories being different from the master." It's more severe: svnsync
fails to copy certain operations. It's actually a "your sync totally
stops working and you can't do anything" kind of failure - see
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3641

If you happen to run into this:
"svnsync: File not found: revision 5, path '/H/B/C'"
you won't be able to sync the repository anymore after that. Which I
consider rather disastrous given that we're going to use svnsync to
provide partial copies of our repository to our customers.

HTH,

Tino.

PS: Daniel, please do not take offense in that I first sent you a "jay!"
mal in private, then this more critical one in public - I've just read
the STATUS after my first mail (which, I felt, did not belong on a
public list).
