The simplest way IMO is to export all desired modules and import them
to the appropriate repositories. (use `cvs export' rather then `cvs co'
to avoid creation of CVS auxiliary dirs&files)
Nevertheless, this approach can be used only if you don't care about
If you have to keep the history of modules you can copy the whole content
of current repository to several places and invoke standard removal.
If you just copy the module you lose administrative info which is held
