What you are saying is that I should make a pointless alias in the 
modules file to the modules in question and whenever I wish to 
create a new module I must do the same.  I don't know how to 
write module file entires, I will have to learn and then add the 
pointless entries you describe.  I could but why should I?  Surely 
the purpose of software is to provide an easy and powerful ways to 
do things.  CVS ought to provide a command so that the modules 
can be listed.  It wouldn't take a day to write and every user would 
appreciate it.

Is the attitude of the CVS developers "it was hard to write so it 
should be hard to use?"
