You could simply test if they were available when the repository was
created and use them when possible. Provide a tool to copy from the EA
to a revprops file if you are going to copy the repository someplace
that doesn't support them.

Something needs to be done to help performance. It shouldn't be taking
four+ days to extract all of the change sets from a repostory. It only
took cvs2svn one day to get them into the same repository.

Also, my repository is 8GB not 4GB, the du command wasn't finished. Is
it useful for me to push a copy out onto a server? Not sure how big
the tar.bz will be when finished.

Also, I have been doing everything locally with a file URL. I am not
using a svn server.
