Not really. CVS does not support renaming. In that sense, its version
management is incomplete. Let's not confuse incompleteness with
incorrectness. Deleting a file and making a new one with the same
contents is something other than renaming. It's not broken renaming.

It only looks broken when we call it renaming; calling it renaming doesn't
make it renaming.
