You are thinking of, or wishing for, something at a higher level than a
simple "cvs annotate".  (and "annotate" is the wrong word for what you
mean, especially in the context of CVS where it has an explicit meaning)

The idea behind using a wrapper script to implement "cvsmove" is that it
would create predictable, parsable, log entries.

This would make it much more reliable for another _external_ history
analysis tool to decipher what was intended when it sees that a file was
removed from one location then another file with identical content was
added to a new location.
