It also may be wasted work if there's an idea that the whole 
repository may be moving again (that is, to Apache) in 6 months.

That said, I recall people generally saying that the SVN 
import-from-CVS tools work pretty well, and they also are able to 
preserve CVS history, addressing Rainer's question.  I haven't 
actually done such an import myself.

If Jason has a lot of uncommitted changes, it would probably make 
sense to let him commit them before migrating, if the migration is to 
go ahead.
