Does anybody know of a tool to download a CVS repository (i.e., all of
the *,v files with all history) using only cvs commands?  It could be
useful for some cvs2svn users who can don't have a way to get a tarball
of their CVS repository to use for the cvs2svn conversion.

Contrariwise, perhaps somebody can think of a reason why such a tool is
not possible (for example, maybe it is not possible to get every last
byte of repository information via cvs).

I found projects CVSGrab and cvsget, which allow a working copy to be
updated via ViewCVS to circumvent a firewall, but that is a different
problem.  We don't just need a snapshot of the repository, but all of
the history.  And hopefully firewalls are not simultaneously causing
