cvs2svn takes very long time to execute (days!)

Hi there,

I am trying to convert our CVS to Subversion, but cvs2svn takes a very long time to execute, and
things seems to slow down with time. Pass 4 takes the longest.

At one point I 'imported' 1 year of commits before stopping.

I simply did not have the patience to complete it, mostly due to the slowdown.

Our CVS tree is big:
- - earliest commit is ~2000
- - cvsroot is 1.4G, ~17700 files
- - One tag is used per build, we are now at build 2700.
- - A dozen or so of branches.
- - I had to modify cvs2svn slightly to accept branches with two different names

Is it common to take that much time? (Should I just go on a week vacation while it converts?)

Any hints on what takes that much time? (I profiled the script and most of the time was to execute
'co' and in enroot_names())

What can I do to make things smoother?
