Oops, you're right!  But it syncs them between two disconnected
repo's, which makes it a partial solution -- perhaps good enough
for some folks.  It doesn't sync tags or intermediate revisions.

Re. "local changes to both sandboxes": why not?  If you mean by
this a file that's been changed in both places, the merge from
branch to trunk (after propagating the changes to the other repo)
will handle that.
