Re: Low-tech unidirectional CVS mirrors

VCP (via svk/SVN::Mirror) is pretty much state of the art.

Yes, it's slow - but incrementals after the initial hit aren't so
hideous. (Although it really does depend on the size of the
repository - it has to scan all the files to see what's changed --
that's just a fact of CVS's architecture.)

It could probably be optimized by integrating CVSdb (comes with
ViewCVS) to avoid the entire repository scan.

CVSdb could also be used to put together a cheaper conversion tool.
