What Derek meant when he said that the modules file isn't versioned is
that if you do something like:

        cvs co -D 1998-01-01 mymodule

CVS will use the *current* contents of the modules file to determine the
makeup of mymodule rather than what the contents were on January 1,
1998.  If you've changed the definition of mymodule since then, you
won't get the same results now as you would have by doing a plain
checkout then.
