Oooh very nice. It seems to be a common issue that projects have to 
tweak their CVS repositories by hand to get a reasonable conversion to 
git. I'll try and take a closer look when I get a spare moment.

My other point, of course, was that since the PostgreSQL guys worked to 
fix a couple of bugs in cvs2git over the past couple of weeks, you may 
get a better result if you grab the tip version of cvs2git and re-run 
the conversion.
