I'm currently a couple hours in on a conversion using this. We'll see how it goes. I'm not confident it'll be much better than the joerg conversion.

A combination of successful software optimizations in cvs-fast-export and throwing hardware at the problem has borne fruit. Now we need to do the politics. Is NetBSD ready for an official cutover? If so, how are we going to schedule this? There's no time pressure on my end; the Great Beast probably won't go live for another month. In the meantime I have temporary ssh access to a machine almost as powerful for test runs.
