yes, that's the ideal source infact (cvs also loses the email domain as
I learnt the hard way ;). That's a good point, we may prefer to defer
adding any bkcvs in cscvs until we hear something definitive from Larry.
If he start exporting the changesets in a different protocol (not cvs),
then maybe it's better to write an importer for it, so it'll work for
all projects hosted at bitmover, not just the kernel.
