module A: common components.

module B: diverse components.

When working on common components, use module A. Consider having a
'floating' tag called 'stable'.

When working on diverse components, use module B (either -r legacy or -r

In your build/test script, checkout A -r stable, and B -r whichever, and

I'm also sure there's some way you could use ampersand modules in
CVSROOT/modules to get what you're after, but I can't figure it out.
It'd start with:

A: common
B: diverse
C: &A &B

But I'm not sure how the branching would work.

Probably something like cvs checkout -f -r legacy C, where you've
developed A without the branch so the -f fetches the head of A.
