Ah, I misunderstood your message, then.  I thought you were asking for a
change to CVS rather than a change to the CVS source repository.  Now
that I understand your question, I'm even more confused: There is no
"cvs" directory in the CVS source repository, the top-level directory is
"ccvs" (that may just be coincidence since it was originally Cyclic CVS,
but I'm going to claim that it was done intentionally to avoid this
problem).  And, since it is a top-level directory, you can always just
use checkout -d to rename it to whatever you want on your local system.
