Feel free to disregard my previous e-mail (below). I answered my own question 
with some experimentation. It looks like using alias modules with the -a flag 
and a space-delimited list of paths will get me what I need.

Subject: modules file question


After reviewing the documentation, I'm a bit confused as to whether or not an 
alias module can contain multiple aliases or directories in some sort of 
delimited list. Consider the following two examples:

(1) Alias module definition:


(2) Ampersand module definition:

ui com/stargus/ui
platform_admin com/stargus/platform/admin
framework_admin com/stargus/platform/framework/admin
starnode_admin com/stargus/starnode/admin

admin &ui &platform_admin &framework_admin &starnode_admin

Obviously example 1 is simpler, but the documentation leads me to believe that 
example 2 is the only viable approach to achieve what I need to do. However, 
the documentation is a bit ambiguous, because it suggests, "aliases may contain 
either other module names or paths". The pluralization of aliases in the manual 
is what piqued my curiosity; since I'm using paths, is there a way to specify 
multiple paths for one alias module with some sort of delimiter like a space or 
comma between them?
