the explanations are recent additions - they weren't there when I read
the manual (a year ago?).

Also, the manual does _not_ explain why cvs cannot do what is described
in <> with "cvs mv"
and <> with "cvs cp".

especially the last one which has only one disadvantage --
 * You cannot easily see the history of the file across the rename.
whose meaning I don't understand.
