Not with CVS as it currently exists.  If you look more closely at
the CVS subdirectory, you'll see why:  CVS/Repository says which
directory in the repo the files came from, and it can't point to
two directories at once.

You can easily check out a *subdirectory* from a different place
in the repo, but you can't mix files from two repo directories in
one sandbox directory.

When I came back around from the dark side, there in front of me would
be the landing area where the crew was, and the Earth, all in the view
of my window. I couldn't help but think that there in front of me was
all of humanity, except me.
