Multiple CVS and same files

Im wondering if it is possible for different CVS's to share some files ?
Im in a project that has two CVS, because they are mainly two
different projects. But in these two projects we do have some
common files that are used in both projects, and it would be nice
if those files just could be one instance.

The problem now is when we update a file in a CVS we must
also edit the other file in the other CVS to update so the file
looks the same. This can be tedious and very errorprone so it
would nice to share the same file in the two CVS's, and just update
one instance of it, and both CVS would have the new file.

If you still dont get it :
Imagine the following layout of a CVS:



the */xml contains the same files but are needed in both projects. Is
it possible to update the cvsA/xml so the cvsB/xml also gets updated ?

Any ideas or suggestions ?
