There are scripts out there that will do this, one rev, one file at a
time. Very slow and potentially error-prone.
I would question whether you really need all the history, especially if
you have your own snapshot of the pre-mozdev CVS. Commit everything
locally, apply a label, grab a clean CVS dump of the source, and import.
I doubt you ever miss the previous history.
