           Summary: splicemap check shouldn't force parent identifiers to
                    be in source

Say I converted svn:repo/trunk to hg:repo_branch_default and added already new
changesets, now I want to add svn:repo/branches/X, so I define splicemap to set
the parent of the first commit of svn:repo/branches/X to some revision of

If I set splicemap to:
svn:....     svn:....   I get some "invalid parent identifier, as svn:... is
all parent identifiers are read out of the hg target repo (40 digit numbers),
and it fails at:


which checks the format of both, child and parent changeset identifiers against
the source repo, instead of checking the parent(s)' identifier againstthe
target repo.
