Uh, correct me if I misunderstand anything here,
You've misunderstood the purpose of migration here. Aidan (among
others) was tired of waiting for CVS remote operations to finish.
Mike (and everybody else) wanted changesets. Nobody was willing to
wait for a full conversion of XEmacs CVS to any modern system to be
done. A process of importing branches as-needed (and implicitly,
by the person who wants them, since that is possible with a dSCM) is
what we ended up with.
 Believe me, it's been tried. Remember, XEmacs has a much longer
history of CVS than Emacs does, and it's pretty messy. More than a
dozen different scripts have been tried.
