No need to shout, we heard you the first time. Really - your first message

Well, as long as you are prepared to live with the consequences if you
should mess anything up...
Have a look at the check-cvs script in the contrib/ directory (of the source
distribution). That may do what you want, or at the very least get you
started in the right direction.

All the more reason to use the CVS interface to move files ;)
I don't think any of the scripts in contrib/ do that, but if you write
something I know I'd be interested in seeing it - one of the problems I've
found is that when people leave (particularly co-op students) they don't
issue 'cvs watch off', so I get bounce messages from our mailer daemon
saying "no such address" for people who've left long ago. I've not yet found
a clean solution for that.
