The modules "file" is conceptually a database (and you can configure CVS
so that it really is a database if you like, although there isn't much
value to doing that unless you have a really big modules file) and, as
such, it doesn't have a "natural" order like a text file does.  So, the
answer is no, there isn't any way to get CVS to give you the entries in
the same order as they are in the file.
