*very soft voice*

   I wouldn't mind seeing a subversion clone of the current repository.  
My experiences with svn have been much better than with cvs.

   I think what Andy is asking for, a "cvs tarball", is not a tarball of 
head, but a tarball of the entire cvs source repository - all revisions 
and meta-data in one tarball.  Such a tarball can be pulled into svn so 
that the svn repository has the revision history.  I don't think that 
such a tarball is publicly available.

   While cvs2svn needs such a tarball, I think some other converters can 
use the cvs pserver interface that *is* availbale.  
http://subversion.tigris.org/project_links.html/  I think VCP is one 
such, although I've never used it myself.
   Also, would you be trying to keep the svn and cvs repositories in 
sync, just a one-way mirror (changes in cvs -> changes in subversion, 
but not vice-versa), or just a one-time snapshot?
