You'll have to remind me what you mean by "incremental" here. Possibly
it's something cvs-fast-export could support.

User can

  - run a cvs to git import at time T, resulting in repo G
  - make commits to cvs repo
  - run cvs to git import at time T1, pointed to G, and the import tool
will only add the new commits found in cvs between T and T1.

I wonder if we can add support for incremental import once, for all
VCS supporting fast-export, in one place, namely at the remote-helper.

I don't know details, so I don't know if it is possible; certainly
unstable fast-export output would be a problem, unless some tricks
are used (like remembering mappings between versions).
