I mean that the emacs repository (the directory pointed at by your
cvsroot symlink) gets a symlink to the url repository. It's then
possible to use CVS module import on the symlinked URL repository.

for example:

   ln -s (subversions)/cvsroot/url (subversions)/cvsroot/emacs/url

You can then combine the one module with the other.

However, a symlink direct to the repository is just as good from a
technical point if view. I suggest the above because IMHO it's easier
to manage, the resources for a project are kept within the projects
CVS repository.
