My current test conversion run is testing two changes: deleting 
emptycommit tags, and using --user-ignores to prefer the .gitignore file 
in SVN over one auto-generated from svn:ignore properties.  For the next 
one after that I'll try eliminating all branch/tag removals that shouldn't 
be doing anything, based on the current sets of branches and tags in SVN, 
and report bugs if I see anything appearing in the converted repository 
that shouldn't be.
