If I'm not mistaken the CVS/Root file _MUST_ be identical throughout an
entire module's working directory, regardless of whether module aliases
are used or not.  A given working directory _MUST_ always come from the
same repository.

(Of course idiot users could maybe manually check out one module from
another repository into the same working directory, but they lose and
that's just too bad for them, IMNSHO!  :-)
