Hmm, you're right.  It appears that that setup does not actually work
very well.  I tried rm -rf contrib/earthdistance, after which I find
that "cvs update" does not bring back the earthdistance subdirectory;
it seems I have to do a full checkout to get back in sync.  I suppose
this is a CVS bug.  And it's one that worries me a lot more than the
annoyance that cvsweb won't show a merged view.  I wonder whether cvs
update would even notice changes inside the earthdistance module?
