Suppose you have moved the sources... From, say, main src/java tree to 
the block... Is it possible to preserve the history of the original 
source file while doing this pruning? I suppose it could be done by 
moving some files...

+10 to impove "cvs update" time.
+1000 to preserve history (have a web and CVS accessible copy of CVS on or some CVS file moves)
