You can do it the CVS way by introducing a third tag:

cvs rtag -r tag_A tagsA_and_B module
cvs rtag -r tag_B tagsA_and_B module
cvs co -r tagsA_and_B module

There is a "non-CVS" way: At first, decide which of the tags A and B is
the one from which you want the files if both exist. Assume you want B
to take precedence.

Then, export the proj with both tags in different directories:

   cvs export -d proj-A/ -r A proj
   cvs export -d proj-B/ -r B proj

Now, copy everything from proj-B into proj-A. Voila, you have both
projects mixed.

Of course, this does *not* work if you want to have a real sandbox!
