VARS project switched to SVN

The CVS support on sourceforge has been pretty spotty since I started hosting VARS on Sourceforge. So today, I bit the bullet and import the CVS repository into SVN. I'll leave access to the CVS repository up for now (it's current up to 2006-05-09) but all future checkouts should use Subversion for accessing the source code.
