On VMS they are called "command procedures", not "shell scripts".

Well yes, and they are called description files not Makefiles, but nomenclature aside, this is the one item on the list whose veracity I can vouch for -- the rest are just rumors :-).

That doesn't look like a proper importer because that's not the proper importer; this is:

You basically just do

$ hg convert

in whatever repository you are converting from, but there are lots of options including some svn-specific features. I think it also remembers what it's converted so a subsequent convert picks up where it left off. I've never used it with Subversion, but I once converted the Perl git repository this way and it worked fine.
