What if you specify URLs as source?

If the solution isn't interesting to you, I won't put in the effort to
get the details solved. I currently don't see a better (already
available) solution.

(Oh, regarding the rm: I think I just got it exactly the wrong way,
i.e. that you need to use "svn rm" not "rm". I already had that
working once, I just don't recall the details without actually doing
it again.)

I meant simple in the sense of easy to compute, not simple
implementation (in contrast to e.g. translating human languages, which
is hard to compute).
