Subversion would not really help since it is basically "CVS done
right" (TM) and thus the problems are similar.  Distributed SCMs are
actually not a matter of developer policy: the adoption of them
basically remains the individuals' choice.  I am currently fighting
with git-archimport in order to get a useful starting point for
working with multi-tty and its history, but might have to do a direct
CVS import into git instead.
