Renaming/refactoring cvs dirs

I have read that renaming a file and keeping it's
history is not exactly easy to do in cvs. With Eclipse
IDE, and a VSS plugin, I am able to rename a dir, or
refactor a package name in our java code and it
automatically updates all cases in VSS and keeps
history. I have to believe that by now there must be
some script that can do this for a CVS directory
and/or files in it? I want to rename an entire package
and all sub-packages (dirs) but yet keep all their
history, possibly adding in an updated message when
the name/package has changed and a ref to the old
name/package. Does CVS not allow this, is there no way
to make this work?
