Sure thing. It's attached to this email. The diff is against
svndumptool.py's svn trunk, I'm not sure if it'll apply cleanly or
not, but it should give you a good idea to start from. The main
reason I haven't sent it to the author is I haven't come up with a
good UI, I just tweak the dictionary in tools.py whenever I need to do
it again.
