I found this in the subversion book:

Ignore Patterns for CVS Users The Subversion svn:ignore property is 
very similar in syntax and function to the CVS .cvsignore file. In 
fact, if you are migrating a CVS working copy to Subversion, you can 
directly migrate the ignore patterns by using the .cvsignore file as 
input file to the svn propset command:

$ svn propset svn:ignore -F .cvsignore .
property 'svn:ignore' set on '.'

There are, however, some differences in the ways that CVS and 
Subversion handle ignore patterns. The two systems use the ignore 
patterns at some different times, and there are slight discrepancies in 
what the ignore patterns apply to. Also, Subversion does not recognize 
the use of the ! pattern as a reset back to having no ignore patterns 
at all.

Aaron, do you want to handle this one?  I'm going to try to figure out 
the keyword problem.
