That's an idea, it would certainly be a workaround. I guess I was just
raising this as a possibly small thing for the svn developers that could
be fixed if it turned out that it was trivial or a small programming
oversight. It would be nice if the tool simply changed what was
necessary, and nothing more. But thanks for the suggestion, I'll try it.
