I think that with whatever repository we decide to go with, be it svn or whatever,
we need to bring it up 'along side' cvs for a short while.  Let the devs transition
over to the new one in the course of maybe 2 weeks; keeping the two relatively in
sync. At the end of 2 weeks, close access to cvs for all new commits and require
committing in the new repository.

Obvisouly the 2 weeks part is just an idea but something along those lines might
make the most sense ... though keeping them in sync might be really expensive.
