For me it's just an inconvenience, but it's inconvenient enough to keep
me from switching. (Not the only reason though.)

The possible damage Brane was talking about would happen when cvs2svn
would set eol-style=native on all files whose RCS file doesn't have the
"b" flag.

For me it's just inconvenient not to have my files labeled correctly. I
could easily set all properties correctly after converting from CVS, but
then they would only apply from the current revision on, not for earlier

A while ago someone suggested that you could run cvs2svn with
--dump-only, and then hack the dump file to insert the correct
properties for each file's first revision. This might be possible, but
I have the feeling that cvs2svn should do this for me.

Are there any reasons why cvs2svn should *not* read my auto-props?
(Except that it may be some work to implement it?)
