(geez, I am stupid, again forgot reply to all).

I was thinking about using a bigger hammer (git + bzr export).

bundle is not just a diff: it records information about file move and 
the likes (which is useless in this case, since svn does not know about 
rename, it just delete/copy). AFAIK, that's one fundamental difference 
between git and bzr. I would not be able to explain the differences, but 
I know some people chose git for this exact reasons (and that's why I 
think using git for the import will be less hassle here).
