The topic has come up before, but no one's written such a wrapper yet
as far as I know. Not sure how hard it would be; the mapping from CVS
to SVN is probably closer than the mapping from SVN to CVS, at least.

If you have a specific use in mind for such a wrapper, maybe you could
write it so that it satisfies that use, and then contribute it to the
tools/ area. Once it's started, other people might contribute more
