cvs2svn depends on the rcsparse library from ViewCVS

   cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.viewcvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/viewcvs \
       co viewcvs/lib/vclib/ccvs/rcsparse

which I'm pretty sure does not support the extended RCS file
definition. Maybe it should, but then we'd probably also have to get
an improved version of RCS 'co', or find some other means to obtain
specific revisions from a ,v file...

Please make a note in issue #1374 about this, if you have time, thanks.
