It doesn't cope too well (but this is general problem with cvs).
With cvsnt however you can rename files using the cvs rename command (so
that the log information is carried over).
It doesn't support renaming of directories or moving of files; effectively
you end up deleting the old and creating the new, so any log of its
contents is not moved over.
