Incremental conversion seems to work relatively well, especially if
you haven't used broken CVS versions on your repository.

Note that GIT has one drawback: it doesn't preserve file identity.
Almost all other sytems (except CVS) keep file identity, which means
that some manual work is necessary when you import GIT changesets into
them.  The other way round is far easier.

I believe the HTTP transport is a bit like a stepchild these days.
And I couldn't clone your GIT repostory.
