Re: VSS to SVN migration script

We use labels extensively in VSS to simulate the functionality of branches
in SVN. Very painful, but necessary at the moment.

Note that an inherited label (a label of a parent project) outputs a history
entry like the following...

Label: "MK Release 266"
User: Dave Date: 2/04/04 Time: 12:02p
Label comment:

That was incidentally the very next entry after the one I gave earlier.
Your Perl script seems to handle these just fine by skipping them.
 The --debug output of vss2svn prints them out as DEBUG(4).
