AFAIK it is compatible enough to allow classes within Ant to rely on
that code (the Mozilla license is, and the SPL is mostly the same with
changed copyright owners).  Distributing SPLed code may be different,
but this is something we don't do with Ant anyways.

Just one comment on "rewrite" here, we will always need a version of
<cvs> that relies on the cvs executable and nothing else for backwards
compatibility.  And this must work without specifying anything
additional on <cvs>.

The easiest way may be: don't rewrite <cvs>, write a new task with a
different name (or a set of tasks).
