I don't think there's anything "proprietary" in there, unless I had some
host names or paths hardcoded. The modules (which I inlined in that
script) all began with "Mercer::" instead of "Vss2Svn::", but the name
of my company is hardly a secret. :)

Has it diverged so far from the current vss2svn as to make it futile to
try merging it back?
