The options file should not contain cvs2svn command-line options. It
should contain Python code to configure the cvs2svn run. Please look at
the cvs2svn-example.options included with cvs2svn to see the format and
lots of documentation about what you can put in this file.

Alternatively, you can specify --dry-run as a cvs2svn command line
option and not use the --options file method.
