Good luck. That sounds very difficult. In particular, operations like moving
and renaming files and directories sounds very hard to duplicate properly
between a remote VSS server and a local svn repository. You'll also have to
deal with sync'ing two different working copies or having both svn and vss
control files/directories in the same working copy. That doesn't sounds fun

I know VSS doesn't have a great reputation but, IMO, it's certainly better
than nothing. Personally, I've used it for years and never lost data due to
a VSS bug. Your experience may differ, of course.
