Actually, I cringe when I hear people say that. :) So many people wrote
off CVS for "real" SCM work because of problems with it that we're fixing
(I won't give the obvious list). So when those people hear "we're
rewriting CVS", they might perceive that as a strong reason to ignore SVN
now as well as down the road. So I think we're significantly
shortchanging SVN when we say it's a "CVS replacement".
