4. It would really be nice to have a regression test for at least a simple
CVS conversion to Subversion. That would at least test the Python SWIG
interfaces from cvs2svn to Subversion and tell the developers very quickly
when any changing Subversion interfaces breaks cvs2svn.

I've started on such a script but I'm still learning the ropes and it
might take a bit to figure it all out. Someone could probably put
together such a regression test much more quickly than I could.
