Yes, you really should start using cvs2svn in the real world! Our group
recently switched from CVS to Subversion, and encountered a number of
problems with cvs2svn: executable bits not preserved; control chars in
CVS log message cause corrupt SVN repository; and astounding memory
consumption. I've just filed issues #1105, 1106, and 1107 on these

 Hm, speaking of that, wouldn't it be about time to merge Mark's cvs2svn
 branch to the mainline? I know the branch and tag generation isn't
 optimal yet (due to the many copies it does), but it works.

Absolutely -- we had problems using one branch-and-tag patch to cvs2svn,
but Marko's version worked. (Moduly bugs 1105, 1106, and 1107 of
course. The problem that went away when we found Marko's patch is that
deleted files in the CVS repository came back to life in the Subversion
