I'm not aware of a single changeset in the CVS repository that
represents a rename.  Whenever a file was moved there were separate
commits that remove and add the file.  For an extreme example, take a
look at
which is the summary of the move of all the texi files from man/ to
doc/.  This summary consists of a total of 428 commits, almost all of
them touching only a single file.  Moreover, each file was first removed
in one commit and readded only much later.  A proper move would probably
have produced less than 5 commits.
