So do you use project/trunk or trunk/project? If the former, I would need to get instructions on how to do the conversion from CVS.

For ipython, which recently went through cvs2svn, I found that moving over to a project/trunk structure was a few minutes worth of work. Since svn has moving commands, it was just a matter of making the extra project/ directory and moving things one level down the hierarchy. Even if cvs2svn doesn't quite create things the way you want them in the long run, svn is flexible enough that a few manual tweaks should be quite easy to perform.
Yes, this will work. I vaguely recall that Jim converted the zope.org repository one project at a time, so that made it easier to keep them separate. We didn't decommission the CVS entirely, though; Zope 2.7 is still maintained in CVS since we didn't want to risk worrying about the branch structure too much; cvs2svn still had a few issues with the complex branch structure combined with the use of symlinks within the repository (one of the reasons we were so keen to move to Subversion).
I'm sure Jim can provide more details of what he had to do; I was only slightly involved in the discussions.
