I didn't know about svndumptool.py. It looks very useful. Would you
consider sharing the changes you made to swap authors?

I thought about doing it this way, but wasn't sure of a good way to get
all the revisions made by one author. I suppose I could loop over all
revisions and check the author. If it is one I need to change, then
issue the propset.

Thanks,

Leon
