You could always, physically copy the file to the new location. Giving you all the 
history in the new location
and run CVS delete on the only location.  I can't see how this is too different from 
the cvs remove/cvs add.
However you get to keep the history as well as keeping the old version.

The second problem still exists where it's in 2 locations in previous releases. unless 
you cvs remove the new copy from
those branches as well.  As always CVS is a bit messy with these things, but just 
throwing ideas on the pile that might work.
