Sorry, It at lets patches and attached signatures pass, so I was just
hoping a text-attachment would make it as well...

I won't upload to svn, as I'm not a committer (and have no intentions
to sign the iCLA)

So next step here is to create a svn dump, pass it through
svndumpfilter to only keep trunk and populate a new repo with that,
then attempt the hg conversion.
If that fails because svn is "ahead" of mercurial, do the same but
only dump up to the last matched version. That way you still will have
the time-benefit but not all svn's history.
