This is no longer true: a side effect of having SVN exported to CVS is
that every time a branch is forked, the CVS ID is bumped, and as a result
is different between 7.0 and 7.1 even if the file itself isn't changed.
As long as this is handled with -U, however, I'm not sure I see the need
for special handling. I'd love to see the -U otion as default, and a
pre-populated mtree database for it shipped with the releases, however.
This would go a long way towards making upgrading more user-friendly.
