AFAIK, CVSACL stores its permission information in .access files in each  
directory across the repository, not into the RCS files themselves.
So the repository itself should be fully compatible. Someone could write a  
script to convert from .access to the xml format used by CVSNT, but unless  
the access rules are too complex, it should be easier to define them again  
using chacl/rchacl.
