It does not synchronise anything, it mirrors a svn branch as a tla
branch. As in: a situation where there is a monotone bijection between
the revisions of both branches.

Either we have a profound disagreement about what it is that
svn-arch-mirror currently does or I don't understand what you are
trying to say.

What do you expect svn-arch-mirror to do? Rollback the changes made by
tla and force the next tla revision to be exactly the svn revision?
Keep the tla changes and abandon the idea that a svn revision can be
found as is on the tla side?

It used to work in a previous version? It used to work in a different
situation (e.g. no changes commited to the tla branch except by
svn-arch-mirror) where our differing interpretations don't lead to any
observable (behaviour) difference? Please specify.
