I would add that if you have defined a module that organizes
your working directory structure differently than in your
repository, then update -d won't work either.  If a directory is
added to the module definition later, update -d won't always
find it.

update only knows about directory and file names, not module names.

however, you can always say "cvs co <module>" to get new directories.
A checkout will update existing files in your working dir the second time,
and will add any new directories.

If you provide a module alias for each top-level directory
in your repository, then you can always "cvs checkout" to
create OR update your top-level directories, and get consistent
semantics that intermix cleanly with more esoteric module definitions.

This seems easier to me.
