This is just an artifact of how SourceForge CVS repositories are
organized.  When I converted Optik's CVS to Subversion, I just did this:

  cvs2svn -s /home/svn/optik /home/cvs/optik/optik

where /home/cvs/optik is what I got after unpacking the tarball
downloaded from SF.

Presumably for Python's repository, this would work:

  cvs2svn -s /home/svn/python /home/cvs/python/python

...except, umm, isn't distutils a separate top-level directory in the
Python repository or something?  That'll probably have to be fixed
