That is certainly the opinion I hold for projects I maintain elsewhere. 
  If it is already in CVS there is no need to switch to SVN.  The 
hardship people tend to have with CVS is understanding the meaning of 
branch and release tags.  However, Drupal has well defined meanings for 
those and the release tools and documentation handle them well.
