Un-flattenning Automake is probably a good idea, but the history is a
serious concern, especially considering that the output of "cvs annotate"
will be affected.

I would do everything as the cvs manual suggests, i.e. "cvs add" and "cvs
remove". I'd rather tolerate some inconvenience than mess with the
"historical truth", i.e. with the history of the project as a whole.

But if you value history of individual files more than that of the project
I suggest (as my second best preference) copying those files in the
repository and then removing the old files using "cvs remove". This way,
the historic versions will have extra files in the subdirs but "make" will
not descent into them and neither will "make dist".
