That would be nice, but also a lot of work -- there are in fact well  
over a dozen files that have been moved or renamed in "scummvm"  
alone; tracking things from "scummvm-old" to "scummvm" will require  
connecting all files found in those repositories, all by hand. I.e.  
using "cvs2svn" won't be possible, AFAIK... but if you know of a good  
technique to do that, or are willing to do it -- no problem, we can  
also import existing Subversion repositories :-).

Personally, I'd prefer this, too, but I also think that it's probably  
not worth the effort to do it...
