The problem is, I wouldn't hold my breath. You will likely see Subversion
mature into production use, yet CVS won't yet support renaming at
that time. At which point it will become moot.

CVS would likely require a massive rewrite to get the repository support
for renaming. In a sense, Subversion *is* that massive rewrite.
