OK, here's a band-aid:

Here's the documentation:

      cvsmv FILE NEW      - do this after mv FILE NEW
      cvsmv DIR NEW       - do *NOT* first mv DIR NEW
      cvsmv ... DIR       - do this after moving files, but not dirs, to DIR

    You move the files, I move the directories, I move stuff in CVS.
    I commit every move so I can add appropriate log messages.

Sorry, it's not in CVS.  ;-)
