With atomic commits, the exports from svn to other SCMSes seem to work better 
than from cvs to svn (or any other for that matter). I believe the reason is 
that you have to infer the commits in cvs whereas it is explicit in the other 
systems. To convert to git, for instance, I converted to svn and then 
imported that.
