My own vote on it was going to be -1, for basically the same reason
everyone else voted +0.  There is just no reason for us to want to move
to subversion.

But, since we're apparently not being given a choice, I suggest we move
to subversion after finalizing the 2.0 branch.  Since branching and
tagging is different/problematic (using the eclipse plugin anyway), I'd
prefer to do a last merge from 2.0 => HEAD using CVS + eclipse, and then
we can move to subversion and figure out how to release 2.1.

I vote +1 on this.
