Sadly enough, I've done this in the distant past. It was pretty simple, except for binary files and some fun with tags. The MKS files are in rcs format, so text files transferred fine. The binary format was different, and I had to write a script to convert the rcs file appropriately. Unfortunately, I can't find the script on a quick look. Look at the rcs file (the *,v file) for a binary file to determine the differences. I seem to remember it was a basic change, but I don't remember what the difference was. The tag issue is relatively minor. MKS allows characters in tag/branch names that RCS doesn't, so it URL encodes the tag name before storing it in the RCS file. CVS doesn't do this, so a tag with a space in it, for example, will show up in CVS with the space replaced by %20. You just have to make sure that you don't expect the spaces to be there.

I know it works with RCS and there are various tools for SCCS, but I haven't found anything about converting MKS.
