Which is cool: it would certainly be good to have a way to try and get
branches imported.

I confess that I think it might be better to do things in multiple
passes (with files inbetween) so that one can twiddle with the files
at suitable places.  CVS repositories tend to have messy bits which
might be better resolved by manual intervention.

However, I've no idea whether that's at all practical.  Quite probably
not.  The intermediate files that cvs2svn produces turned out to be
too big for me to fiddle with conveniently, and maybe that's

It doesn't appear to compile (I tried
