Yep... I could switch to subversion easily at any time... the hassle is going
to be getting the entire CVS repository moved over somehow, and I'd guess
the only practical way to do it would be a wholesale move, all at once, so
that people don't get stuck trying to keep up with both simultaneously. 
I think it would be important to get everyone who actively maintains stuff
in CVS to agree on when and how it should get moved over.

Oh yes, subversion versus git?  Well, I don't know if sourceforge supports
git, but if they do, that might be the way to go.
