Maybe not trivial, but a lot of the has importers. SVN as it is aimed to 
replace CVS has a CVS importer for sure. And Mercurial has a Convert Extension 
for exact that reason. 

"Your first option should probably be the ConvertExtension bundled with 
Mercurial. It supports branches, incremental imports, and a few other nice 
features, and is maintained by the Mercurial authors. It currently only 
understands CVS, Subversion, Git, Darcs, Monotone, Bazaar, GNU Arch, Perforce 
and Mercurial as source formats and Mercurial and Subversion as destination 
formats." [1]
