I just tried out cvs2svn for the first time last night, and I must say
I'm impressed. It converted the linux kernel 2.4 cvs repository
(there's an exported cvs repository based on the bitkeeper repository
that you can rsync) to svn in about 4 and a half hours.

One thing that we should probably work on is the fact that doing an
svnadmin load on a large dumpfile produces a LOT of logfiles from
berkeley db, and it's quite easy to run out of disk if you're not
careful to do a db_archive -l | xargs rm every now and then while it's
going. Perhaps we should install a temporary post-commit hook to do
that during the conversion or something?

(Note that I imagine this is not a new problem, the old cvs2svn would
have had the same issue AFAICT.)
