Most projects make a clean break with cvs (no more commits) for the  
reasons you point out.  Not sure how the other core devs feel about  
that but I could go for that; it would def. prevent headaches.  We  
could keep cvs for the time being as read-only, with no svn->cvs  

There are few projects which have (as a phase-out plan) old read-only  
cvs repositories available, with an automatic svn->cvs commit  
following every new svn commit.  Not sure how that works, esp. for  
branching/merging and so on which I could see potentially getting hairy.
