OK, this is very useful -- to support MacCVS Pro, we'd want to add
support for MacBinary and BinHex as well (possibly only in cvs2svn),
but that's just adding well-known code.

Thanks -- I didn't know it was there and it would very much be part
of a solution once we solve the issue of losslessly encoding MacOS
files in a Subversion repository.

Once we get that working, how would you feel about adding a rule for
handling a MacCVS Pro settings file to cvs2svn?

This would automatically set the file encoding, text/binary, eol
mode, etc. type/creator, etc. based on what would have happened had
the project been checked out by MacCVS Pro.

Then, on check-in if the file has a resource fork (which would only
happen if it were encoded in CVS), we put it into svn as AppleSingle,
otherwise, if the file has a type/creator assigned, we check in the
data fork and add an AppleDouble property to preserve that info.

(For that matter, we could just adopt Matt Slott's patch and just
save everything as AppleDouble in the repository)
