The following seems to work well for me w/o messing with the Attic

    1. Find next to last revision of file ("cvs status <file>" and subtract one)
    2. "cvs update -p -r <rev-number> <file> > <file>"
    3. "cvs add <file>"
    4. edit as you like
    5. "cvs commit <file>"

CVS will notice that you're re-adding the file and will keep the history.
