Not at all.  Please don't misunderstand me, I'm trying to work within the 
version control system.

I fully appreciate the importance of the history.  What I was trying to 
avoid was mixing old history with new.

If I add a new file that happens to have the same name as an old (removed) 
file, won't the new file have the same ,v file as the old?  Would this 
matter?  Am I over-analyzing this?
