See

- "externals" within a same repository with shared commits.

Actually, this is trivial in CVS - in CVS the server has a "version"
file for each file that is being versioned and if you create a symbolic

We are in the process of migrating from CVS and it is the only feature
of CVS that we miss (and we miss it a lot).
