New submission from Carsten Grohmann <carstengrohmann at gmx.de>:

I ran in a small issue during the conversion my personal CVS repository
because it contains some patches. Those patches are checked in with disabled
keyword replacement to remain the keywords inside of the patches. The
default conversion process destory most of the patches because it resets all
keyword.

I suggest a small option for "hg convert" to disable "-kk" on demand.

Workaround:
 1. Get the source of mercurial
 2. Remove "-kk" from hgext/convert/cvs.py
 3. call "make local"
 4. Use the new hg file to convert the affected repositories
