Star Team to CVS conversion?

Has anybody here migrated from Star Team to CVS?  My group uses Star Team right now and for a host of reasons (money, bugs in ST, etc...) we are thinking about migrating our repository to CVS. 

I can't find any tools that do a direct conversion from ST to CVS, so I'll have to do some round-about way if I want to preserve the revision history. 

I'd like to hear about any experiences regarding a migration like this, before I go off and reinvent the wheel, so to speak.  We are hosting ST on a W2k box right now, and can do either cvs on Solaris or cvsNT if we need to.

I think you can do a recursive import into CVS.

This loses you "past history" of files, but gets you going pretty quick.

Thanks for the advice.  I was hoping somebody had done it so that they history was kept.
