But the URL is not immutable. You wouldn't believe the number of people that
have come to the git-list to complain about git-svn not properly importing
svn repositories simply because the layout has changed since the repository
was first started, or because it was moved one directory up, or some branch
was deleted after having been used to tag something from. SVN is fragile and
has no way of canonically naming a commit. URL+Rev doesn't cut it, since
URL can change (and so can rev, but only in insane cases).

That's a misunderstanding of SVN.

The URL at a revision cannot change without filtering the repository (which you could do with any SCM if you understand the internal repository format).

You're seeing URLs change between revisions. IE: revision 10 has file:///trunk/foo/README.txt revision 11 has file:///foo/trunk/README.txt
