I was just chatting on #svn and saying it would be cool if svn:externals
could access CVS repositories. Then Jay mentioned that you could use his
WebDAV<->CVS gateway to get something close to that effect.

The gateway has a few limitations right now: can't handle updates, and must
be run with local access to the CVS repos. But it I think this is an
interesting approach (ok, ok: sick, twisted and interesting). :)
