[cvsnt] Mark modules invisible in "modules" file?

I second this motion!
We have the same problem with virtual modules in that we have to define
about a score submodules from which we build the final virtual module
definition that is supposed to be checked out.
And this happens for *all* virtual modules we use!
On checkout via WinCvs the list of available modules is overwhelming
and it is very simple to select the wrong one.
So we have had to introduce a naming convention where all "support"
modules are named with a leading _ and the users are instructed not
to check out a module with such a name.
Hiding modules from listings would be a better way.

Subject: [cvsnt] Mark modules invisible in "modules" file?

Hello World, hello Tony,

Is there a possibility to mark a module "invisible" in the modules file? 
That is: they are not shown if I do a 'cvs ls'.
The reason: I've made several ampersand modules, that are itself modules 
in an ampersand module. Of course, they are not meant for checkout.
For the users, there are only three different modules for checkout, so 
it would be useful to mark all the other ones invisible.

Is this possible?

Best regards
