You can do it for whole directories, but not for individual
files.  All of the files in a single CVS working directory have
to come from the same directory in the repository.

Subdirectories are different; you can grab them from here and
there, including sharing them between projects.  You can do that
by hand, but the CVSROOT/modules file lets you do it in an
organized and repeatable (if somewhat cumbersome) way.  See:

Warning: don't try to do it by making symbolic links inside the
repository.  I gather that's a *really bad* idea!
