It's probably still technically possible, but quite difficult I'd imagine. Try it first on a backup of your main repository and see how you get on.. Renaming is pretty quirky (still marked as experimental) although it does work provided you don't try to move files around with it - I find I have to update a couple of times before the client works out what's going on... the cvsnt repository itself has many renamed files on it (.c to .cpp mostly). 2.6.x will fix that (and allow directory rename) but it'll be a major upgrade & won't be stable for a while yet.
