I'd support such a move.

cvs was one of the first Ant tasks since the ASF used CVS, but I
wouldn't expect it to be used by larger parts of our user base

Unlike the VSS antlib we probably wouldn't have problems finding
enough committers to support it.

OTOH there is no pressing need to move it since it is pretty stable
and doesn't see many bug reports.

I prefer an approach like the one we've taken with the .NET Antlib.
Keep the original tasks in core but deprecate them, don't delegate to
the Antlib at all.
