I know Joe was in contact with the SVN devs to work on this, so perhaps he's using a patched version of cvs2svn, I simply don't know. But I mention it in case it proves useful to the python.org conversion.
Thanks for the pointer. It turns out that I could resolve all my conversion problems myself (following Jim Fulton's suggestion of creating dump files). I found that somebody created a patch to support different structures in cvs2svn directly, but these patches have not been integrated yet.
