Unless I completely misunderstand one of you, this is contradicted by
Jelmer's assertions here:

Am I the only one who sees these assertions about the design intent of
‘bzr-svn’ as conflicting?

Certainly Russel's *description* matches my experience and would
explain the evident behaviour of the plug-in. Yet Jelmer seems to be
saying Russel's description is not true.
