Yes, should you want to do so.

Module names have nothing whatsoever to do with directory names.  CVS is
perfectly happy to take a relative path within the repository in lieu of
a module name, so you don't have to define any modules at all.  However,
there is a command to list all the modules (co -c) but there isn't a
command to list directories.

Yes, if you want "co -c" and things that depend on it to work.
