Well I found a solution, it is possible to use symlinks (unix)
when creating files and directories in other directories.
It is both possible to symlink the directories and files and
committing works lika a charm now :)

So I ended up with a layout such this one

cvB/xml -> cvsA/xml

Thanks for all the good answers
