FWIW, a couple of months ago I added an option to cvs2svn to unpack
AppleSingle files during the conversion, but the current code throws
away everything but the data fork (because SVN doesn't have a way to
store the other info!) This was helpful to a user who didn't need the
other resources. This code is in the trunk version of cvs2svn and is
accessible when starting cvs2svn via the options file method via the
ctx.decode_apple_single option.

I know this is not a solution to the problem being discussed; I just
wanted to let you know that it is out there.
