You might also be able to do what you want as an alias to the
A4 subdir?  That way the other directories are not touched at all.
That's controlled via the CVSROOT/modules file.

eg, an entry like this:

A4only   A/A4

maps the project alias "A4only" to the A/A4 directory.  I believe 
that when you check it out of the repository that you'll get a dir
by the name A4only with the contents of A/A4 (not 2 levels deep).

The reality, though, is that this alias is not really a seperate
project, but the same directory in the A project, but it will
limit your view of that project.

Would be a good idea to look up a definition of what the modules
config file does just to be sure it does what you may need... :)
