Thanks, Raphael, for bringing this to a proper place!

I must say here that I'm at least partially to blame for this. I said I
would take care of it and never really did when I got too involved with
other activities. We had someone interested in changing more svn-bp
stuff to make support of multiple formats easier in general but that
seems to have stalled as well.

Neil is maintainer of the package but I'm listed as uploader and as such
will now discuss with them an upload of svn-bp with your patch applied.
