It's cool. I've seen projects fork and keep the same name before, and it
wasn't pretty.

The COPYING file also mentions checking
http://subversion.tigris.org/license-1.html, which now points to
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/LICENSE, which an ASL 2.0
license. Any chance of getting the COPYING file updated to reflect the
newer license?
