Yes, this is my understanding also. In cvs(nt), many operations are
directory based (for one, all meta information is directory based), so
mixing several modules in one sandbox directory doesn't work.

I don't know anything that would work (besides export, but that doesn't
allow a commit). Why do you need to checkout to the same sandbox directory?
