RE: Checking out a "subset" of a CVS module

I've heard this question many times and wonder if it is motivated by an 
incorrect notion of the function of CVS checkout. Checkout gets a 
"snapshot" of a module and places it in a local directory. It doesn't 
reserve editing ability with regard to checked out files to just one 
person. In other SCM systems "checkout" does have this latter meaning. 
Was this your assumption, or is there another motivation for not 
wanting a complete snapshot in a local directory? Thanks
