The ,*, files are indeed artifacts of RCS; they're the updated copies of the
RCS files before they're renamed back to *,v files.  Creating them in a
different location doesn't buy us anything because they'd still have to be
copied back (to a new name) and renamed to the original.

AFAIK, there's no way to do this.  Unless I'm convinced otherwise, I wouldn't be
opposed to such a change.  In fact I think it would improve CVS if it did create
temporary files elsewhere (possibly in LockDir?).  OTOH, the location of the
temporary files may be an artifact of RCS, so, in practice, such a change may
not be easy.
