Indeed, very nice! Combined with svnrdump this should allow anyone to
convert any publically accessible SVN repository to git/hg/bzr with
history preservation :)

Would reposurgeon in theory be able to use SVN dump files as a destination
as well as a source? Or perhaps the answer is to teach 'svnadmin load' about
third-party formats, such as git's fast-import (which would then need to
solve a rather similar data model mapping problem)?
