But CVS and SVN workflows are similar enough, since the goal of svn
was to preserve as much of the workflow as possible while improving
the internals. Plus, TortoiseCVS is showing its age and probably would
benefit from being retrofitted into TortoiseSVN's more modern gui
interface. What is the barrier here? CvsNT has been modularized to the
extent that requiring spawning of cvs.exe is no longer necessary. Both
projects make use of putty for ssh activities. It seems like it would
work nicely. Also, consolidation would be optimal in this case, since
having more shell extensions tend to make explorer slower to respond.
