Excluding directories/files during CVS checkout

I wanted to exclude certain files and directories when a person does a
CVS co on a source directory. I dont really need to use 'modules',
since I have a really simple setup (the source tree "snips"  is under
$cvsroot directly).

Seems like the only way to do it is using an *alias* module. So I added
the following in 'modules':
     snips   -a !snips/exclude1 !snips/exclude2  snips

However, doing a

        cvs co snips

choked on this and said module snips has an infinite loop. So I tried
renaming the snips directory to snipsdir. But now when the person does
a cvs co snips, the files are extracted to 'snipsdir' instead of 'snips'.

Anything I am missing? Cant I do directory excludes for a 'regular'
