I see.  Many/most modern VCS can still handle such cases by
distinguishing the committer from the author.  I.e. when you commit you
can provide the name of the author of the code you're committing.
I'm not sure if "svn commit --username" can be used for that or even if
svn offers such functionality, tho it seems at least that you can
manipulate the "svn:author" property after the commit.
