I think you can simply rename the directories holding the sources on the
server.  Assuming a CVSROOT something like :ntserver:SERVER:c:/cvs then
c:\cvs\x becomes c:\cvs\y and you then cvs init a new x module to start
your new project.

If you mean to rename branch tags that gets a little trickier but is
still possible.
