ooh... threaded cvs2svn

Bill Tutt sent me a little tongue-in-cheek ICQ about operating cvs2svn
asynchronously, so we can take advantage of multiprocessor machines :-)

In all seriousness, though, if we get compute bound, then multiprocessing
would be great. We can easily use threads for the create/load of a
transaction (if they're non-conflicting). A main thread would need to
sequence committing them, however.

[ that non-conflicting would be a bitch, but ya never know... with the right
  preflight analysis, then store the result in the log, we could probably
  leave flags in the log saying "parallelizable" ]

We'll see what happens. Python has great threading support, so it wouldn't
be a problem if it came to that.
