Hopefully you can still see all your files in dired ;)

I'd be prepared to change your workflow as usual workflow with CVS
should be different from those with RCS, I think (though I never used
RCS). I use usual Emacs ways to work with files, and pcl-cvs to work
with *changes*.

Using CVS, I add changelog entries *before* commit, and then commit
all the changed files along with ChangeLog(s) in one shot. As far as I
remember, there even exists a way to copy comments from ChangeLog(s) to
the commit message automatically, but I didn't bother to learn it, as
usual copy/paste works quite nice anyway.
