Basically, if your choices are _only_ CVS and Subversion, I cannot think
of _any_ good reason to choose CVS, unless you need support/integration
with some tool/IDE/OS/etc that Subversion does not yet integrate with.

Subversion is basically CVS++, and those plusses do make a big difference,
particularly support for versioning directories, tracking renames, and
atomic commits. I've also found branching to be easier with Subversion,
though once it has history-sensitive merging, it'll be even better.
