Thank you, that is helpful.  It does seem odd, though, that,
starting from a directory that is not under any version
control, C-x v v in a file does offer to create a
new... something... using RCS, or SCCS, Bzr, Git, etc., but
not CVS.  Since the process you outline above is very
straightforward, it seems like just the kind of thing
'vc-next-action would do for you in such a case.

I do have cvs installed, and it's not the end of the world
if I have to do it manually, and I'm not trying to test VC,
actually, just use it.  I was just very surprised VC wasn't
sort of doing the thing I expected, the way it has when I've
used RCS.
