Ah, in that case, move directories a and c to a different location in the
repository, create entries for each of them in the modules file, and add
them as ampersand modules in the main project entry. Something like:

project_a -d a project_relocated/a
project_c -d c project_relocated/c
subproject-b -d project project
project -d project &subproject-b &project_a &project_b

should do it. NOTE: Make sure anyone using these directories checks in any
outstanding changes, releases their local copy, then does a fresh checkout
when the move is complete.

No, as I said, you don't want an *alias*, you want a *subset*. The two
concepts are different. Setting the name of the checked-out directory is
easily fixed using the -d option.
