I wasn't aware of a cvs2svn mailing list and I've lots of questions
here concerning conversion to and from other versioning systems.

Just to end this thread here: On the cvs2svn IRC, Michael Haggerty
suggested a solution which I applied successfully. Use --dump-only
option to cvs2svn to produce a SVN dump file, then edit a couple of
lines by hand, and load the dump file into a newly created repository.

After studying the dump file format, I found this quite easy (but
probably a bit more difficult to do automatically by cvs2svn): Delete
the "Prop-content-length" line and the matching property section,
adjust the "Context-Length" value accordingly and add the
"Node-copyfrom-rev" and "Node-copyfrom-path" lines.
