OK. As a workaround, I wrote a patch which adds a --redate option to
cvs2svn, so that revision time stamps are set to the *current* date, not
the original commit dates.


svnadmin would probably a better place for a --redate option, but with
cvs2svn it was just particularly easy to implement (and sufficient for
my problem).
