I've been looking at the cvs configuration file CVSROOT/modules.
I /think/ the procedure is something like changing this:

  nhc98src        -d nhc98               nhc98
  nhc98libraries  -d nhc98/src/libraries fptools/libraries
  nhc98           -a nhc98src nhc98libraries

to this:

  nhc98src        -d nhc98               nhc98
  nhc98libraries  -o darcs get --reponame=nhc98/src/libraries \
  nhc98           -a nhc98src nhc98libraries

and then a fresh cvs checkout of the nhc98 would be required in
order to pick up the new location.  Has anyone else tried this kind
of tweak before and confirm that it is likely to work?  If not,
I might test it out with the smaller cpphs module initially.
