Thanks a lot.
I did something that is working but I'm not sure it is a good thing to do.
It was very easy though.
I've just copied in the repository (,v files) all the files I needed from
one module to another and now everything seems to work just fine.

Moving ',v' files around in the repository is almost never the right thing to do. Copying ',v' files around is never the right thing to do. Now you've got two copies of file1 in different modules; which one is the 'correct' one? If a user changes one, does he/she have to change the other as well? How will they know to do this? What happens if they don't?

This is likely to just cause you and your users confusion. I would strongly recommend using modules to accomplish what you want. Good luck.
