I like this idea ... if the old SVN server is still available
and we can do a progressive conversion of the rest of the Hg
stuff we will save a lot of metadata that had previously been
lost (plus we save conversion time).

I suspect the original CVS stuff that was lost in SVN conversion
is gone for good by now.

Also, having the complete repository (with branches) in google
code sounds like a good approach.
