Thanks.

Martin and Matthias, are these OK with you two?  All of the
changes look trivially correct, so I'll take them.

This part, before or after Pavel's fixes, seems to refuse a
branch named 'topic/#1'.  This is not a problem for import
scripts that name their own branches based on what is in the
foreign SCM and flatten their the branch namespaces, but I'd
prefer a comment about the issue somewhere around this code, to
prevent people from copying and pasting the use of "basename()".
There is a corresponding piece in svnimport as well.
