Sorry, I kept using "svnclone" where I meant "svnsync". My mistake.

I used svnsync to create a local copy of the repository (I don't know
of any other way of making a local mirror if all the access I have to
the remote system is http - is there another?)

Checking svn info, it does indeed look like svnsync results in
different UUIDs. So this can never be a way of "priming" a local bzr
snapshot - I have to create the snapshot from the same source (the
same UUID, in any case) as I want to pull from in the end.
