It is *not* that big of a change.  All one generally needs to do is 
commit all of one's changes and do a fresh checkout.

Two things to note:

If you have a large number of existing files modified in an existing 
checkout and you are not prepared to commit them, all that you need to 
do is to update the various CVS/Root files with the new name.  I 
typically use Perl to do this, but there are existing tools that can 
help, for example:

Alternately, if you can commit your changes, but simply want to obtain a 
fresh checkout using a directory name other than the one on the server, 
use the -d parameter on the cvs checkout command, for example:

cvs -d checkout -d xml-axis ws-axis

After either of these are done, you can continue to do cvs updates and 
commits normally.
