I am kinda new to cvs.  So I may be understating the

I think that you could just checkout the modules file
and add the path to the end of each alias.  I tried
the "&" trick and it seems that it doesn't understand
aliases.  (aliases keep the full path name).

with aliases, the modules file looks like

alias_name_1  -a path/to/alias/name/one
alias_name_2  -a path/to/alias/name/two

common_stuff  -a path/to/common/stuff
group_stuff   -a path/to/group/stuff

The last line is the interesting one.

Without aliases, the -a might work.  Keep in mind that
I am kinda new and so may be way off.
