looking for references on the evil that is *CVS*

Hi All,

Similar to Robert, I am trying to convince a dev-group here to move from
CVS to SVN. I *know* SVN is better (tm), but I need more arguments.
Arguments I used until now:

- atomic commits
- better handling of binaries
- it's new and cool :)

Also there is some resistance against the copy-merge philosophy. People
here came from VSS, and are happy with the checkout-warning in CVSNT. I
am trying to convince them that this does not give them security, only
slows down the development efforts.

Any ideas more then welcome!
