If you converted, it would be done for you by the infrastructure team, 
who have been playing with SVN for some time. It would be their job to 
get the history across fine, and I'd be pretty surprised if they hadn't 
got that one under their belt already.

They would be very keen to help a project use Subversion instead of CVS.

Forrest wouldn't be the first to use Subversion - there are incubated 
projects using it. Forrest might be the first CVS migration. Not sure.
