Unfortunately that's not what's being asked for. That would convert a
CVS repository to a SVN one.

As for converting a working copy, I don't know of any tool that does
that. The CVS and SVN working copy formats are very different. I don't
think it would be wise to try and convert them.

Is there a reason, other than not wanting to do it, to not just
recheckout? It should be a fairly starightforward process and you'll
only have to do it once. Whereas some conversion tool might mess up
and force you to do it over and over and over.
