Well, there are quite good GUIs for svn (often better than those for CVS).

But we need that and we need someone to take over and really support
the version control API so that project/project_issue/project_release
modules can be RCS independent  (see
for a plea for help on this).

I'm not sure where you were heading with this - perhaps that using CVS
for the project makes it easy for all us developers who prefer SVN
because we can include CVS into SVN.  However, SVN working copies can
be "checked into" SVN as well - see external/vendor branches.
