KUDOS to the svn team re: voting experience

I just voted on the logos, a little thing but it demonstrated definite
improvements upon cvs... none of the following is news to you, but I
just wanted to say I'm liking the new system and thank you for
developing subversion.

Once I got all my proxy issues resolved (btw, there should really be a
list in one place of *all* the http methods svn uses, unusual or no -- a
couple of partial lists is all I could find), there had been four new
revisions to VOTES. Better than either automerging or providing one
conflict file, "svn up" gave me several files to compare, and diffing
the .mine and the .r66 versions let me see what I had voted for and (in
this case) add the same votes into .r70. The need to "resolve" the
conflicted file once I had written my modified .r70 back out as VOTES is
also nice as a simple but important piece of bureaucracy, as I have more
than once committed merge conflict files into cvs repositories and I
can't see doing that with svn.

I hope my experience with managing branch dependancies is as nice. When
is cvs2svn expected to properly handle branching and merging, account
for the CVSROOT/modules file, etc? (i.e. when is it expected to be
complete to the point that serious cvs repository users can use it?)
