I took a look again and it turns out that tomboy (like vala) started in
svn when gnome was still using cvs.  So there's no cvs history and the
svn history goes back beyond the switch to svn.  The fix for vala fixes
tomboy too - I reimported the tomboy repo, and it looks good.  The
importer still creates the _svnXXXX tags for the cases where a tag has
been overwritten.  The _svnXXX tags can just be deleted.

Thanks for reminding me :)
