I couldn't agree more. But, i don't think that's what the
previous posters are talking about.

I'm sure the previous posters will correct me if i misrepresent
them, but that's exactly what i see them advocating. I don't
want to see Subversion 1.0 held up waiting for cvs2svn, but i
also don't want it to ship with an old cvs2svn. Subversion 1.0
should include the best cvs2svn we have, from the trunk.

This seems to be a recurring trend in these 1.0 discussions :).
Subversion ships with some side projects that are not maintained
on the same schedule, and sometimes not even by the same people.
Subversion itself has a certain set of requirements for its 1.0
release, and holding the bindings or cvs2svn to these
requirements is not constructive.

I really want to see Subversion 1.0 ship with the best cvs2svn
and bindings that we have available.
