I don't know about anyone else, but I use "cvs log" every time I do a
"cvs update" to read other people's thoughts about the changes they've
made to the code I'm about modify.  If just one of those files has been
renamed in its past, then I want "cvs log" to show the file's entire
history, before and after the rename (and indeed before and after
*every* rename in its past).
