Sure... I was just saying that my impression is that cvs2svn.py
generally creates tags that have more "mixedness" than what normally
would have resulted if svn had been used from the very beginning. I
think it's just a side-effect of the hard problem cvs2svn.py is solving
via heuristics.

His mail is excellent cvs2svn feedback, you're right. Sorry, Bern, I
didn't mean to sound hostile.

The problem is that this is the third email I've seen where somebody
confuses the efficiency of cvs2svn.py with the efficiency of subversion
itself. It's because a hot-button issue for me. I guess I'm being
silly. :-)
