Has Arch ever gained an ability to import CVS repositories? That was one of the big wins of using Subversion, for us.

Monotone can import CVS archives. That's one way it's tested.

There are tools for CVS<->Arch gateways: tla-cvs-sync (there is also tla-svn-sync, BTW) and cscvs. tla-cvs-sync is rather simple and does not try to extract changeset boundaries and log messages from CVS, while cscvs does so. In my experience, tla-{cvs,svn}-sync work very reliably, while I had limited success with my one attempt at cscvs. If you only want to have a read-only CVS mirror of an Arch archive, tla-cvs-sync is perfectly suited.

See http://wiki.gnuarch.org/moin.cgi/Interoperating_20with_20CVS for links to these tools.
