In CVSROOT/modules:

        # Add other modules here...
        abc     foo
        xyz     foo2
        xyzzy   &abc &xyz

Then checkout the xyzzy module:

        bash-2.02$ cvs co xyzzy
        cvs checkout: Updating abc
        U abc/foo1
        cvs checkout: Updating xyz
        U xyz/bar1

Although it isn't obvious from the above output, it creates a working
directory named ``xyzzy'' (which contains abc and xyz):

        bash-2.02$ cat xyzzy/CVS/Repository

        bash-2.02$ cat xyzzy/abc/CVS/Repository

        bash-2.02$ cat xyzzy/xyz/CVS/Repository

As you can see, *none* of the CVS/Repository files say anything about
xyzzy, which is the module that I checked out.  Likewise, none of them
say anything about abc or xyz, which are the submodules that xyzzy
