No, that overstates the case.  The reality is that CVS commands *that
take the name of files/directories in the repository* will treat mname
as if the aliases had been specified instead.  The catch is that most
CVS commands take *local* files/directories rather than repository
files/directories.  Basically, it works for checkout and the various r*
commands (rdiff, rlog, etc.).
