I guess I should be a bit more specific.  You set up a module alias.  If
you have module A and B, both of which use module C, you can define a
module X with contains modules A and C, and Y which includes B and C.

X -a A C
Y -a B C

We used it at Candle without a problem, that included 20-30 developers
(on 3 continents) and thousands of files.  The only reason I even mention
and problems is that my current boss seems to remember a thread here
several years ago about it being dangerous.  I seem to remember the
thread talking about symlinks on the client side.  I also remember a
thread about problems with NFS on the server side, but I digress...

I'm sure that I will be corrected if I'm wrong here, when the rest of the
world wakes up.
