In fact I have the same impression. It consistently *appears* as if Greg
wants people to accept the limitations of CVS to an irrational degree.
In his view, it appears, I must not only accept that CVS doesn't
handle renames, but also stop wanting a version control system that
handles renames.  In fact, I must stop seeing file renames as legitimate
version control events. Otherwise, presumably, my mind will somehow go
to pieces imagining something that the selected tool doesn't provide.

This may be far from the intent, but it sure reads that way, Greg!
