Why don't you create symlinks in the repository instead of making a full
copy?  Then it will automatically be kept up to date in both places.  CVS
does correctly handle this, and I believe this is how regex.[ch] was dealt
with on the old repository.  The only problem with that approach is that
ChangeLog entries for regex were written to the emacs ChangeLog, not the
regex ChangeLog, but it's possible to update the latter from the cvs log
from time to time.
