SVN project spreading FUD about cvs2svn? :-)

I just noticed what the Subversion FAQ has to say about cvs2svn:

> Members of the Subversion development community created and maintain
> a tool called cvs2svn. You can find it at http://cvs2svn.tigris.org/.
> Be sure to read the cvs2svn documentation.
> If cvs2svn.py does not work for you, (e.g. your repository causes it
> to crash, or it doesn't deal with branches and tags quite how you would
> like), there are at least two other conversion utilities you can try.
> These have different features (and possibly different bugs):
> [...]

This makes unflattering implications about cvs2svn that are also IMHO no
longer warranted. The comment was probably fair WRT earlier versions of
cvs2svn, which were more unstable. But I think that cvs2svn 2.x is
quite robust, reliable, and flexible.

Is there a sympathetic soul who would be willing to change the FAQ? If
you haven't followed the cvs2svn project, consider looking over the list
of current features [1].
