merging history for same file is not possible in cvs (without excessive 
*,v file hacking).
so the "removing gedit module" could be replaced with "renaming gedit 
module" as otherwise you end up with same *,v file again:

1. rename gedit dir to gedit0 in cvs server side and optionally drop it 
client side
2. rename gedit2 dir to gedit in cvs server side, and adjust names in 
files on cvs client side
