I think it's not explanation >> best to start recording them now.
This feature is big change to cvs(nt), you(we) should think
this feature carefully.
For ex, you put the file-name only. Are you thinking rename feature is
 available only in same directoly?
Please, hear other person's opinion for big feature before implementing.
Please, please.

WinCVS and TortoiseCVS use cvsnt, vast majority of windows cvs user are rely on YOU.

I agree with you that cvs doesn't need attic.
But I'm worrying about other applications look into repository are affected,
like merge-point affected to viewcvs(or cvsview? I don't know much about this)
