CVS Emulation mode?

From: David Mankin <mankin_at_ants.com>

Excuse me if this idea has been discussed before...

Have we thought about making a CVS emulation mode for SVN? This would
make svn accept cvs command lines (as far as can possibly make sense)
and in turn run appropriate svn commands. By doing this, we could have
instant compatibility with tools that work only by calling the CVS
command line client (like several IDEs, I believe).

Is this feasible? Desirable?

Implementation ideas:
  1) hack up a perl script that parses the CVS command line and turns it
     into svn command line calls
  2) start with the source code for CVS that handles the command line
     parsing, and have it call svn client libraries instead of CVS
  3) somewhere in between
  4) ...?
