So part of the goal for me is to reduce the cost of trying Darcs out.
Having to convert your repo is cost, so if we support SVN somehow we
kill that cost.  But another form of cost is having to worry that Darcs
will let you do things that you can't later push back to the SVN repo
(because you're still not yet committed to Darcs; you're just dipping
your toes).  So that's my goal.  100% compatibility, zero psychological
cost.  Just try it!  Darcs as a better SVN client.  See what I mean?
