You'll certainly turn blue if you try.

CVS cannot easily ever support renaming to any extent that something
like BitKeeper or Perforce does, at least not without breaking backwards
compatabilty of the repository structure.

There's simply no place to put the extra meta data necessary except in
the commit comments themselves, and you can much more easily build
simple little wrapper scripts to do renaming and to drive "cvs log",
"cvs diff", "cvs annotate", and "cvs update" if that's all you're going
to do.  I've already started the ball rolling, yet again, by posting yet
another version of the first such wrapper needed.
