So I've started playing with git a bit, and it looks like a full clone
of a CVS converted repository is 500M. A shallow clone fully checked
out is around 355M. [The actual history of the shallow clone is only
65M, which shouldn't be too arduous to transfer; it'll certainly be
better than using cvs.]
My current checkout of the CVS is around 425M.
Based on this, I don't believe any translators will be inconvenienced
by the size of a git clone, and I don't believe there is any real
reason to use submodules for each language.
