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?

no.  you can rename the CVS stuff manually or svn mv if using svn.
