Thanks Larry but it looks like what I want can't be done regardless
of the number of submodules I attempt to checkout. I also forgot to 
mention that grapes and oranges are subdirectories (rather than
simple objects) of vegetables and would be subdirs under fruits.

We use a simple implementation of cvs (1.9 and 1.10) and have not
made full use of the admin files found in CVSROOT. I was hoping
for an answer that would lie within the use of those files.

I'm bummed but thanks anyway.

I think it will work the way you want if you only checkout one thing at
a time.  CVS isn't smart enough to figure out how much it can shorten
names without getting into trouble when you checkout more than one thing
at a time, so it just doesn't shorten them at all.
