Sounds interesting, but it's too much to digest for the moment. :-)
Fortunately we have time to think about that or even try it out, getting
the trunk repo to Apache is more urgent.

If noone thinks that hg convert can cope with merge change sets, we know
that only the OOO340m1 tip can be imported as a first step.
