How did they do that?  In CVS, it isn't easy to delete an entire source
tree by accident.  You'd pretty much have to be trying.

This is an unusual sort of request, and CVS doesn't specifically
allow for this.  You could presumably use a commitinfo script
that would check if the file existed before committing it.

You can restore dead files about as easily as recreating dead
revisions in CVS.  I wouldn't worry about it.
