Thanks for the patch, but cvs2svn works fairly well for us as is (in
the version that was released with Debian sarge); see


for the conversion procedure. On the machine where I originally did
the conversion, the script required 7h; on my current machine, it is
done in 1:40 or so, which is acceptable.

Out of curiosity: do you use the --cvs-revnums parameter? Should we?
