According to John Tobey:
I bet a "cvs mv" that I wouldn't be ashamed of could be implemented
in 50 lines of Perl. (is that what you meant?)
I think so. I'd like to see it, actually. And if it copes properly

This is a topic of regular and very heated discussion on info-cvs, just so
that you're warned. It's rather difficult to come up with good semantics
for file moves that don't have various drawbacks.
