I did something similar MKS to ClearCase for a ClearCase evaluation at
my last company... ClearCase kept telling us it was easy, and sending in
consultants and if you just blah blah blah... and instead we ended up
writing a script that basically checked out the initial revision of each
and every member, then checked it back in to ClearCase... and when we
were finished they told us that was the best way to do it.

The downside for us was while we maintained revision history of each
member this way, we lost the project wide checkpoints... but obviouslly
a smarter script could've maintained that... however, we didn't end up
going with ClearCase so I never had to worry about that.
