rename source file (extension) / rename it in CVS too

RFE: I want to rename a java source file (not the class),
e.g. to keep a currently nonused source in MyClass.java.txt
or something.
There is currently no way to do this within IDEA, so that
the file would automatically be renamed in CVS too.

If you have CVS, why would you want to do this? Delete the file. If
you ever need it, retrieve it out of the attic.

you're right, it could be retrieved from cvs repository at any time. maybe there is some command line syntax for it? (not knowing it, and too lazy to look it up, I would fetch it from the filesystem repository itself).
But sometimes I want to keep a source around for very easy back retrieval, e.g. even if I work at home with no remote cvs access. Or just to indicate that there was a source file removed - because of not being 100% sure it should stay removed... This is probably only because lack of possibility to comment out a complete source file ;)
