CVS does not work on the root level.
Even in SVN, it's ok and desirable to just look at a subdirectory.

vc-dir has used the current directory since the beginning, I haven't
seen any request to change it until now, it doesn't seem like changing
the default behavior after so many years when there were no requests to
do it is a good idea just because someone sent a patch to change it.

vc-hg displays the "Root" in the vc-dir header.  The intention with that
was to make it a button that would display vc-dir on the top level
All backends (especially vc-git) should implement that Root header and
implement a button for it...
