Someone put comments in among the numerical names of revisions in the
beginning of the file, so it looked like this:
* Things had to be restructured at 1.97
Problems with layout
Once I stripped out the commentary in the weird location, everything
seems to work. I have developer with the code verifying their CVS
branches. I'm unsure whether someone manually edited the files 6 years
back, or there's some way to store such comments there gracefully, but
clipping that commentary seems to resolve the cvs2svn conversion.
