I've gone ahead and updated the main 'CVS' link to be 'CVS / SVN',
and changed a whole slew of the language on that page to apply to SVN
as well.

Rightfully so, that was an oversight really. I'd say my SVN service
is far superior to my CVS service (and I'm trying to transition my
current CVS users over to SVN, since frankly it's easier to manage).

Thanks for going so far, I've also added pointers in the FAQ to aid
users, and hopefully made it much clearer!
