If you haven't committed yet, doing "cvs add" on the file will cancel
the "cvs remove".  If you have committed, use "cvs status" to find out
what the (dead) revision is and remove it.  For example, if "cvs status"
shows that the repository revision is 1.12, you would do:

        cvs update -j1.12 -j1.11 file

(note that the revision are in reverse order to undo the removal) and
then commit.
