Just to second "M. Warner Losh": we moved Valgrind from CVS to SVN about
3.5 years ago and it was an excellent thing to do.  It is not true to say
there is no advantage over CVS -- the global revision IDs, the ability to
rename files, and a simpler branching/tagging model are all big advantages.
And the fact that it is more-or-less conceptually a drop-in replacement makes
it easy for people to make the migration.

Sure, Valgrind is a tiny project compared to FreeBSD.  But we gain those
advantages nonetheless.
