How about:

  A. checkout new working dir using new repository location
  B. transfer content of old working copy to new working copy
  C. delete and cvs remove files from new working copy if necessary
  D. get rid of old working copy and continue work in new working copy

                 What about...?

                 4.  Run a script which deletes all the CVS/Root 
directories and then 
`cvs -d /new/path/to/repository update`

                 Won't this do the trick?
