CVS pserver emulation for SVN?

Is there something that emulates the CVS pserver protocol on top of
subversion? I've googled for it but found nothing so far.

I'm involved in a project where the goal is a CVS to SVN migration for a
client. The current goal is a complete migration, not a cut-off where
some parts later live in an old CVS repo and the rest is converted to
SVN. We believe that having multiple sources of version-controlled
information is a path to madness :-)
We have identified the following obstacles:
- There are old build-scripts that rely on CVS. These live on old
  branches in CVS. But it *could* occur that bug-fixes are necessary on
  such an old branch. Rather than modifying the build-environment,
  emulating cvs would be an easier solution.
- There are third-party tools in use that currently only support cvs.

So we are thinking about writing such an emulation if nothing exists.
Shouldn't be too complex if we're using subversions python interface?

But I can't believe nobody has thought about that before us...
