mercurial would consider them identical, i.e. the last revision
in each branch would have the same name.

bzr-svn wants to have this property, so that two developers who
each want to use bzr to work with svn, but also collaborate using
bzr, don't have to first create an import which they both work

To do this is uses a different revision naming scheme which gives
deterministic and known revision ids for a particular svn revision.
