Because it interests me, I implemented a simple 'detach' script, which
you can find here:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/tools/client-side/detach.py

It's very hacky, and I do, of course, disclaim any harm which may come
to your data which may come as a result of using this script. I am
interested in any bug reports, however.
