Agree on both counts; the devs have gotten used to seeing the diffs  
inline.

We prob. need to schedule a specific day/time when the switchover  
would take place so we can announce (so everyone knows and no one can  
gripe).  Did we ever resolve the svn->cvs issue?  Jason pointed out  
some tools a while ago...
