if you planned to have your CVS server on a Unix machine,
you can use symbolic links to the *,v files in the repository.

That way, I have been able to define a module gathering only
*.idl files that are located in multiple directories of another

Note that bugfixes regarding symbolic links in the repository
have been incorporated in recent CVS releases (I think you
need at least 1.10.3).
(see )

Hope this helps,
