unfortenuately, I'm rather clueless where the problem actually is. 
I just want to import some svn-managed stuff to mercurial. 
to be sure that I'm not using it incorrectly I tried the same
on an ubuntu box: there, the identical call to `hg convert' succeeded
(pointing it to the local working copy of the svn-repo).

now,  _if_ mercurial depends on py25-socket-ssl (as it seems), should this
not be a dependency of mercurial, since the `convert' extension is installed
together with  mercurial?

next thing is,  although, I _did_ install py25-socket-ssl, my problem did not go
away. so my question is: can someone please confirm the reported behaviour
(i.e. `hg convert -s svn {path_to_some_svn_manganged_stuff}' does give an

"Subversion python bindings could not be loaded"


last [not least :-)]: how can I get it running?

many thanks
