It's even worse than that.  Retrying with the trunk, SVK synced 500
revisions in about 10 minutes.  We have 54165 revisions (not all trunk
ones).  That means it will take about 54165/500 * 10 minutes = 1080
minutes = 18 hours.  Yikes!

SVK has an option to skip revisions, the -s argument to sync, but it 
doesn't seem to work:

amk at matterhorn:~/tmp$ svk mirror http://svn.python.org/projects/python/ //mirror/python
Committed revision 1977.
amk at matterhorn:~/tmp$ svk sync -s 54100 //mirror/python
HTTP Path Not Found: REPORT request failed on '/projects/!svn/bc/1/python': '/projects/!svn/bc/1/python' path not found
