Yeah I know the feeling... I've still got one personal CVS kicking 
around too.... laziness wins every time :D

Sure. There are both cvs and svn tools distributed with git.

With git-svn you can get bi-directional linkage to the subversion 
repository (e.g. for using git locally to work with upstream projects 
that still use subversion) allowing you to rebase your clone on upstream 
commits and also commit your local changes back to subversion too. I use 
it all the time at work and it's awesome.

The cvs module is not bi-directional, but it should work fine for a 
one-off import:
