Renaming the file will probably lose information anyway.
What I'd do is cvs delete the file (this doesn't kill the history stuff), with
a comment like "Renamed to newblah.c". I'd then check in a copy of the file as a
new file, with a comment like "renamed from oldblah.c".
mv oldblah.c newblah.c
cvs delete oldblah.c
cvs add newblah.c
cvs commit -m "renamed oldblah.c to newblah.c"
