Instead of using CVS commit to do your conversion, you could use RCS ci
commands to build your ,v files.  I used RCS commands when converting
several CMVision repositories in the past.  My end was result was a complete
conversion preserving all revisions, dates, user names, and comments.

ci has -d[date] for date, -w[user] for author and other options.  
You can build the ,v files directly into your CVS repository area or move
them into it later.

I fear you will need to modify the RCS files by hand.
