bzr-svn: Pushing existing BZR to new SVN repo.

Ah. My apologies, I missed that.

When I use -r 0.. I get this message:
DeprecationWarning: NULL_REVISION should be used for the null revision
instead of None, as of bzr 0.91.
  revision_id = _mod_revision.ensure_null(revision_id)
All changes applied successfully.

However, there is nothing in the bzr-svn checkout.

I also tried creating a bzr branch of the bzr-svn checkout, and then merging
using -r 0.. with the same results.

If I try to do a merge (without the -r 0..), I get the previous error about
having no common ancestor.
