Unfortunately, none of the recommended (or documented) workarounds
for cvs' absence of a true rename is reversible without either losing
something or having to do a lot to recover the entire history of
the configuration.

If nothing was checked into the new "source" tree (the original
mail suggested that the time period was brief between doing the
rename and deciding that doing it was wrong), then just stop using
the new "source" tree and re-add the original src tree.  If changes
were committed, then diff and patch will become your best friends.
