Ultimately it would be best to write up what you want to accomplish
without referencing the CVS plugin. Describe the scenarios you want to
support etc.. I can then probably tell you the problems you will need to
solve. Hopefully you are aware of Subversion's feature set and
limitations as those will also have to be accounted for.

In most cases, anything you can come up with should be solvable by using
svn:externals and a little willingness to be flexible. But if you want to
try to add the feature, go for it. Since I have no way to know that you
plan to stick around to support what you do, the more documentation that
accompanies it, the more likely it'll get accepted. But we can cross that
bridge when we come to it.
