modules, no, it is not.  rancid-cvs specifically creates new modules, and
i've come to the conclusion that this is easier in terms of supporting folks
when they have cvs issues.

as for sharing a repository, possibly.  i've never tried, but you can.  try
setting CVSROOT in rancid.conf and/or symlinking ~rancidusr/CVS to the
other respository.
