[rancid] Changing hostnames

Is there any provision in RANCID to compensate for hostname changes?  That is, if router.db is populated with device hostnames, backups and CVS bits are named relative to it's corresponding router.db entry.  If a hostname is changed in router.db, CVS will attic the CVS bits for that entry which longer exists.  Is there any way for RANCID to tell CVS that a hostname has changed and have CVS update itself accordingly, or is that beyond the design intention and/or scope of CVS?
