I found a post on the net stating that CVSROOT directory *is*
necessary but that cvs2svn does not use any info therein during
conversion.
See:
http://tigris-scm.10930.n7.nabble.com/Is-CVSROOT-dir-mandatory-when-using-cvs2svn-td57397.html

However, I believe that I need to use the flag --use-cvs in order to
parse the CVSNT repository properly and this might mean that cvs
itself will use CVSROOT for something.
And then I have the problem of stuffing projects from the 6 different
repositories into SVN: Which CVSROOT should be used during conversion?
Or can all of them be there at the same time?

CVSNT specific stuff:
---------------------
I realized that I have used one CVSNT specific item and this is the
keyword -kbx, which means that some binary files have been marked as
binary with the exclusive editing flag. Typically this involves
Microsoft Office documents and PDF:s, which we did not want any two
persons simultaneously editing since they could not be merged.

Can cvs2svn deal with the -kbx keyword, for example by treating it as
-kb?
Or will these files be in any way corrupted by the conversion?
