The idea seems a bit strange to me.  BitKeeper can export fairly
readable patches, and someone's already doing this for the Linux
kernel here <> (also available
by rsync).  These are one file per changeset, and have text at the
beginning showing file renames and things.  That surely ought to be
better than trying to go via CVS.  (I think there's a mailing list
where you can get changesets, too.)
