My understand of CVS's code is that such a situation is not considered
as "dead" but as a bug.  The redundancy between the "in the Attic" bit
and the "dead head" bit is due to history.

Well, .... it's irrelevant in that moving the file is not going to
resurrect the file.  If moving the file out of the Attic is not done to
resurrect it, then what is it for ?  I'd understand if you just threw
away the whole Attic thing, but then you have to do it wholesale.
