I'm not sure what I am to understand from this. I've done thousands of 
conversions both with cvs2git as well as git-cvsimport. If you think there is 
a problem with git-cvsimport I may be unaware of, or there is a solution 
cvs2git has implemented that may or may not have been an actual problem with 
git-cvsimport, please point those out.
