Deleting and adding creates a new object, which has no relationship
to the old. Suppose someone is working on the old one in parallel and
now wants to merge. But oops, you have removed it.  In a version control
system that supports true renaming, this isn't a problem. The merge
will happily go to the file under its new name.

Don't mistake what you are willing to live with for an actual preference.

Meta-CVS: version control with directory structure versioning over top of CVS.
