Is there take-up on the bzr-fastimport side of things for that?

Include a copy in-tree? Use hg subrepos. ;)

Well, I think I'll decline for now. I'm still trying to manage the
Python hg migration, and so a bunch of my devel time has been going
into hgsubversion. Since you're handling the CVS side, I think the SVN
side will be more fertile ground for potential converts than the other
DVCSs (for the near future, anyway).
