Help with moving repository

We are in the process of moving our cvs repository (pserver) for reasons of
size and speed, and have so far asked our CVS users to ensure everything is
checked in to the existing repository, remove the existing working copies
then modify their CVSROOT or -d options and check out again from the
address of the new repository (which is actually a mount point for the
moment from the old one, until everyone sets up correctly, then it will be
copied to its proper location at a convenient point).

Some of our developers are complaining that this is going to take them too
long (don't ask, I've already had the argument with them).

Is there a utility available anywhere to perform global changes to the cvs
metadata in a users working copy. For instance change the entry in cvs/root
from ":pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/cvsroot" to
":pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/cvsroot". I can imagine that someone somewhere
has done this before.

If such a thing were available, it may just save me a few headaches.
