If I understand correctly, all you have to do is define the subproject
in your modules file.

    cvs checkout CVSROOT
    cd CVSROOT
    <edit the modules file>
    cvs commit

In the modules file, you make up names for your projects and give
the path to the top of their tree (relative to $CVSROOT).  There is
no reason a project can't point to a subtree of an enclosing project.

    mainproject         path/to/top
    subproject          path/to/top/and/thence/to/sub

You can then check out 'subproject' by itself.  Hopefully it is
self-contained so you can build and test it standalone.  Any commits
you make to your subproject/ sandbox will show up when you update
your mainproject/ sandbox, and vice-versa.

If this isn't what you want, please clarify.
