Well, off the top of my head I can think of at least a couple of situations
where the ability to go back to old directory structures isn't terribly
important, but it is important to be able to go back and look at the 
history of the actual associated files using standard cvs mechanisms.  
It's all about the individual people involved assaying the risk associated 
with moving directories around within cvs.  The major risk for moving 
directories around is the inability to build old releases.
