Ok, this would be easy to script. The svnbook says the svn:date is in
"ISO format" but doesn't reference a particular standard. However, it
appears to be a UTC timecode with microsecond resolution. I can ape
it with date (slightly ugly since date doesn't have a microsecond
option):
echo `date -u +%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.%N | cut -c-26`Z
Does that format look right?

And given that microsecond resolution, might subversion get confused
if several hundred revisions had exactly the same time? I can also
write the script such that it pulls a unique time for each revision.

Thanks,
Kylo
