In the future, please keep emails of this nature on the info-cvs list. You are
much more likely to get a prompt response.
Anyhow, I didn't mean that you wouldn't be able to access old revisions. What
I meant was that moving files and directories around could break your makefiles
and maybe other code which depends on file structure.
Thus, checking out old source from a reorganized tree would work, but when you
went to do a build the makefile might break since it is trying to build
olddir/foo.c rather than looking for newdir/foo.c.
