Wouldn't better still be to fix cvs2svn?

Oh. So, I just found the README.txt....

Well, I'm inclined to alter the specification to state the Node-kind is
irrelevant, and should be omitted on write, and ignored on read, for a
copied node other than in the case of "Node-action: replace", in which
case the Node-kind specifies the kind of the *new* node, which may be
different from the copyfrom node.
