Moving between modules in CVS isn't a whole lot of fun, even if doable.  SVN
has a different model, which would make partitioning acces rights, and
moving things around a WHOLE LOT easier.

This project seems almost ideal to give Subversion a whirl, considering how
the project structure interacts with key differences between CVS and

I believe that it just takes a request to infrastructure to set things up,
