What you say is, unfortunately, true.

CVS does not handle mixing of files within the same directory.

However, some folks take "conceptual structure" to an extreme,
and create a separate directory for each class (conceptual object),
with all of the file cruft for that class: .h files, .c or .cc files,
as well as the tests for that class. (You *do* write unit tests,
don't you?)

CVS does a pretty good job of allowing sharing at directory
granularity, so you arrive at your goal.
