I would also vote for SVN, especially if we can ensure that we
preserve the complete history from CVS so we can reconstruct old
versions and tags.

I know that SVN isn't perfect and lacks the advantages of distributed
version control systems, but the advantage of SVN is that it is close
enough to CVS for most contributors to transition too.  For Swarm, I
think the benefits of familiarity outweigh the benefits of newer
