Two key features are missing from CVS, and fixed in svn and arch: atomic updates, and renaming. Both are quite severe problems, and have justified a lot of work. Having done the work, they find various other things much easier to fix than they would have been in the CVS codebase.
Not to be neglected, though, is that the CVS code is terminally insecure. It's amazing a lot more breakins don't happen through CVS, although maybe they do and we just don't notice.
