Yeah, the Win32 client used to have all kinds of / vs. \ issues and they
tended to break the build a lot. However, nowadays, the windows client (at
least the command line one, which is what I first thought you meant) works
quite well. RapidSVN (a Win32 GUI) is probably buggy as all hell still.
However! TortoiseSVN (a Win32 shell extension) works extremely well. When
I'm not using the command line client that's what I now use (and what I set
up the few other developers at Gnostic Labs with when I finally switched us
over to Subversion a week or two ago).

As for the CVS to Subversion repository importer, it seems to at least
partially support branches. BUT, it doesn't seem to support the Cocoon2
repository somehow. *Got it out of rsync earlier and let it sit for an hour
or something converting.* I'm working on looking at the input, generated
dump file, and partial output to try to figure out what's going wrong (it
has something to do with a branch where some files got added to the branch
later and then got deleted and it doesn't know they weren't int the branch
to begin with for whatever reason).
