I too noticed the droppage of "-a" support, which may not be a big
deal (people can drop it from their script, run cvsimport and they
can drop newer commits from the resulting Git history to emulate the
old behaviour without "-a" that attempted to find a quiescent point
if they really want to and suspect that the upstream CVS repository
was not quiescent during the import).

Likewise for "-x".  You said "no longer can be told" and that is
technically true, but it is more like "no longer need to be told, as
stale cache cannot get in the way", so it is probably not a big
deal, either, for people to drop it from their script.

About the changed behaviour regarding "origin", I suspect that it is
a change for the better, but we would probably need documentation
updates to cover it (and deleted options and (mis)features) before
this topic graduates.
