I haven't found myself renaming files much, quite honestly.  How
does CVS deal with file deletions and additions?  That's the way
I'd prefer to go over renaming anyway.  (I have never deleted a
file from CVS, but in VSS it works the way I'd want it to, which
is to remove the file from the browser but if you revert to an
old version of the code, you get the file.)
