The information is inside the 0, 1, 2, ... files.

Think of it like a grid:

         file_A file_B file_C file_D
rev 0
rev 1
rev 2
rev 3

In CVS you have one file for each COLUMN of this grid. So "file_A,v" contains rev 0 to rev 3 of file_A. In contrast, in SVN, you have one file for each ROW of this grid. So "1" contains rev 1 of file_A, file_B, etc.
