Versioning modules instead of files?

it seems that CVS is completely built around versioning individual files, such that every file has a revision number (which is perfectly fine, especially in later stages of development where the changes usually concentrate on a single few files).

However, especially in early phases of development, revising single files is sort of too granular, because the changes are so huge. It would be a lot better, if the versioning would happen on the module base, i.e. you can commit the content of your sandbox as a new version of your program rather than new versions of the individual files.

Is that possible somehow? I can't find any means at all in the documentation to keep track and control the /program/ version instead of the individual source file revisions.
