That would be a good thing.

Michael, in case you're wondering why I've continued to work on
cvs-fast-export when cvs2git exists, there are exactly two reasons:
(a) it's a whole lot faster on repos that aren't large enough to
demand multipass, and (b) the single-whole-dumpfile output makes it a
better reposurgeon front end.

Reasonable.  I'm doing this as a temporary break from working on GPSD.
I don't expect to be investing a lot of time in it after I get it
to a 1.0 state.
