I just wanted to clarify.. cvs2svn isn't broken.

Our hell-hole of a repository had so much broken stuff accumulating
over the last 15 years that it became one of the benchmarks that
people used to 'torture-test' their cvs -> XYZ converters. It had
examples of just about everything that was possible to be wrong.

I finally got around to fixing most of the worst offences in our
repository.. thus depriving the SCM community of one of its harshest
torture test suites. :)

The cvs2svn folks have been very helpful! I have nothing but
complements for them!
