I've been thinking about this since reading it on CM Crossroads this morning. I don't think it would be too terribly complicated. On the server side, I think it's just a matter of packing up the entire repository and ftp'ing it to the new server (or just copying it if you have a samba share).

That's the bulk of it. You would have to update (or more likely rewrite) any scripts, such as commitinfo, loginfo, etc.

My only concern is whether or not you'd have to worry about the "^M" end-of-line problem between windows and Unix.
Nope. RCS file format always uses a plain ASCII LF character as the line terminator, regardless of the platform the RCS file lives on. It's the client that translates LF into the appropriate line terminator for the client platform.
