I've actually looked at adjusting svnsync to handle this but I just
haven't gotten back to actually doing the work. So many things to do
so little time. :D

This might be a stop gap way of handling this but the better solution
long term is what Branko was talking about with being able to svn cp
between repos and then handle the merges.

If both things are equal time or the cp/merge between repos is only
slightly more time I'd say we shouldn't bother with the svnsync
solution since in my opinion it pollutes the svnsync tool.
