[cvsnt] Re: Ampersand modules again [was: cvs checkout -d broken in 2.0.0?]

After the last set of messages on this last week I finally looked up what
ampersand modules (are supposed to) do.  They do look valuable for common
module inclusion, but I'm not sure why this would be used over aliased
modules.  When are you using ampersand modules, and do you use aliased
modules (and when)?

The docs I've seen explain how they work, but don't even really attempt to
show use examples.

Have you tried 2.0.1?  That doesn't do the ampersand correctly if you don't
specify the '-d' but seems to be OK if you do. (which is annoying because it
worked last time I tried it).  It certainly seems to get the CVS/Entries
in any case.

It's possible you're the only one using ampersand modules, but it'd be nice
it worked.
