Well, you *can* do it in the modules file.  If you add an entry like:

        fruits   vegetables

then you can do:

        cvs co fruits/grapes fruits/oranges

and get what you want.  If you always want the same subdirectories, you
can include them in the module definition as well:

        fruits   vegetables grapes oranges

then you can just do:

        cvs co fruits

and you'll get fruits/grapes and fruits/oranges.
