OK, I will probably just make one SVN repository and make the current
repositories top level directories in that repo.
Then I can make the path-dependent permissions as described earlier.

But now I have to deal with 6 different CVSROOT directories too...
Is cvs2svn using the CVSROOT directory during conversion or can they
be removed from the source so as not confusing the operation?
Or do I need to use the cvsnt cvs.exe during conversion and does that
in such a case need these admin files in CVSROOT?

I will make a copy of the active repo for use during conversion of
course so I can take out the CVSROOT directories if they are not used.
