OK, I thought the metadata would be the issue.  Thank you for confirming

We are in a fortunate position where the project is brand new, so we don't
need to worry about recreating existing releases.

The problem is that working copies have CVS/ subdirectories with metadata
that is based on the layout of the repository at the time of the checkout.
If you remodel the repository you have to hunt down all those working
copies and edit the metadata to match (not recommended).  The path of
least resistance is to wipe out the working copies and obtain fresh
ones after the reorganization, as you do.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you can no longer recreate old
releases that predate the reorg.  If you try, they will come out under
the new layout.  This is a show-stopper if you are still supporting
old releases.
