It depends - are there any makefiles, build scripts, or such like, which
will break if you check out an old tagged version? If so, then 'cvs rm'
each file in 17_coolest_things, and 'cvs add' them to 15_coolest_things.

Otherwise, just have everyone release their working directories ('cvs
release -d'), go into the repository, rename the directory, and check it
out again.

No, the closest you can get is 'cvs import'. Either that, or the 'find'
command, with '-exec cvs add {}'
