i was more-or-less joking there... :) i agree with you in these.

definately, thanks for noticing this! i was in the belief that the
conversion was lossless.

fyi, the resulting repo of the cvs2darcs does not pass a darcs check,
and cvs2darcs was last modified sometime in 2004. i've contacted the
tailor guys and asked them to take a look at the slime repo because
there's probably some bug in tailor that makes it skip the first n

of course i hold back my horses until the conversion is fixed.
