   *Update*
   
   After some complaining on the git@ mailing list a patch has been produced which
   drops the memory requirements down quite a bit.  I can now, without much tuning,
   work on my 512 system.  I'm pretty sure a 256 + swap without any special tuning
   would also work.

   Assuming conversion starting from date(x) to freeze(y) is relatively easy, the
   refinements of Joerg/ESR conversion can continue to run in read-only mode as they
   do today.  This means the "switch" is a few hours only for:

   2. history from last git conversion pull until now is appended
   3. cvs is turned off
   4. git is made available over ssh
