It depends on the cvs repo.
Branch tags/copies using cvs2svn generate much more disk than it would if
you had used svn originally.

There is a branch in the gcc cvs repo that every time it gets tagged,
generates 4 meg of just fsfs *metadata*, and it's been tagged about 200
times. This is because of how svn has to generate the branch from the cvs
commits that created it.

If these had been svn cp's, it would take nowhere *near* that amount of
disk space (maybe a meg or two, total).
