I think the old situation was more logical. Especially since having a
link to '.' seems very undesirable, even wrong, if you ask me. And
anyhow this change was not backwards compatible.

Anyhow, cvs co -d a/b/c foo is now an impossibility, right? Would it be
very involving to hack in the repository itself to actually move foo
to a/b/c?
