That's true. Also if you have commits that took many minutes to 
complete, sometimes they'll get broken up into more than one 
transaction. There can be quite a few other quirks. It's not perfect. 

Oh the other hand, the cvs2svn script has been getting quite better 
recently. There have been lots of improvements even just from 0.25 to 
0.26. I don't know when or if supprt for converting branches or tags is 
slated to be included, though. =)
