If you do this:
cvs -d <cvsroot> co -l .

then you will create a checked out sandbox of the top level of your
repository but without the actual modules therein. After this is done
you can create a directory inside this sandbox and then cvs add it,
thus creating the top level module you are discussing.

So it is not needed to use import to create top level modules!
