You can do that in CVS, if you are willing to share entire directories
or directory trees as opposed to isolated files.  Use submodules
("amperstand modules") in the modules file.

You may need to reorganize your source tree to avoid mixing shared
and non-shared files.  In any one directory of a checked-out sandbox,
all the files must originate from a single directory in the repository.
