do you mean 'add forever'  ? If so, just use cvs import (which allows you to
import things as a sub(sub(sub)) directory of an existing module. You can
still re-import from the same source, so it's not really 'forever' anyway.

Look into the documentation of ``the modules'' file (e.g.,
$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/modules, or the manual or FAQ). You can create aliases and
lump things together for checkout.

Alternatively, use a script that creates the appropriate symbolic links in
the checked-out copies.
