I know close to nothing about python, nor about the algorithm of
cvs2svn. I could author an issue, though.

I know. This doctored example works fine. Correcting this would
obviously require renumbering of the original version numbers. And
keeping a dictionary for resolving references from the project files.
I'd rather avoid it if cvs2svn doesn't require it.

Or do you foresee a conflict against the vendor branch revision?
Does/will cvs2svn apply some special treatment to those branches?
