You've found that Subversion works much better. Does it work *so* much better that it's worth migrating your internal stuff over to
it, while still retaining CVS knowledge and usage for the other projects which you don't control?

FWIW, SourceForge is planning to implement Subversion, apparently alongside CVS, as an option for a repository there.
