I've got this working now in a program called 'vcp', I need to test
p4->cvs updates using the perl5 repository next week.  All revs of files changed
by @6087 are labelled ch_6087 when doing p4->cvs, for instance.

Yup.  Working on cvs->p4 to do that, too.

Perforce has funded this work, and we're presenting it at their user conference
next week.  More later when I have real progress on getting the perl5 repo
converted to cvs.

I'd be very interested in VCP::Source::CC and VCP::Dest:CC modules that
would allow clearcase->any and any->clearcase copies.
