Well. First you say they are equivalent, but then you don't take the
consequence (and select one of them).

And it wouldn't be random if you always selected the branch closer to
the trunk, or trunk if applicable.

To me they are equivalent. How we copy stuff while creating the svn
dumpfile is not an inherent attribute of the original repository. What
matters to me is that every line of development and every tag has the
correct intermediate and final states, defined solely and exclusively in
terms of file revisions. That is, not how we have copied stuff around to
get there.

-w DiffSymParent didn't make a difference on my example (cvs2svn-0.50).
I'll try later with 0.51.

Sorry for the fuzz. It's your show. I'll be quiet now, waiting for some
other peoples' comments.
