         True, and fair enough.

         It appears to do the correct thing (ie. nothing with the greater
revision numbers), with some rudimentary tests.

         Thanks again. Keep up the good work.

I got the first (I'm sure there will be more) comment from my boss today

"I find myself dreading having to go back to modify stuff in our old
PVCS projects, subversion *is* really good."

We only moved the newer projects to subversion, since there aren't too
many edits left on the old projects - and due to a difference in how PVCS
Version Manager and Subversion treat svn:externals, it takes a bit of
effort to migrate.
