Note that CVS favors "/" rather than "\" as the module hierarchy

In the cvshome cvs versions, two files that live in separate directories
are not directly related to each other. If you move the repository files
around, then you will break the ability to use the files in their
previous locations for previous releases of your sources.

You may find that using MetaCVS rather than cvs will give you additional
flexibility in this regard.
