Since SVN doesn't support Audit, Changesets, Mergepoints and a couple of
hundred other features of CVSNT it is IMPOSSIBLE to convert a CVSNT
repository to a SVN one.

Or if you did you'd lose all the valuable information that has been
collected regarding the relationship between changes.  

Interestingly studies of the ROI on CM implementations show that the
value to an organisation of implementing a version control system is in
this information.

Only tools that collect this information can therefore hope to provide
any return on the investment in the programming teams time for running
the version control system.
