cross-directory merge

From: Adam Jenkins
Subject: cross-directory merge

Hi All,

Lets say I have the following situation


Where "MYBRANCH" is the production code (currently unders support) and HEAD is the new development code base.  Lets again say I have to reorganise the files (rename and move files and directories -- in particular, do a massive java refactor) on HEAD.  Then lets say I have to do a bug fix on MYBRANCH, and merge that bugfix down to HEAD to make sure it's been replicated.  How would I go about doing my directory/file moves so that I could still do the merge later.

Any suggestions as to how to accomodate this problem (and whether cvs can handle it) would be appreciated.
