[Mono-list] type-reflector

I took a look into this, and it doesn't quite do what I want.

What I want is a combination between normal CVS modules and CVS
ampersand modules.  What I want to be able to do is something like this:

	$ cvs co mono-tools
	$ ls
	debugger	type-reflector
	$ touch Makefile
	$ cvs add Makefile

In other words, I want to have a CVS module which contains other CVS
modules, much like ampersand modules, but with the ability to add
additional files to the module, such as a top-level Makefile and
configure script.

When I try the above with ampersand modules, it gives me an error saying
that the current directory is invalid (or something like that).

I want a top-level makefile so we can make all the tools in mono-tools
at once, not individually.  A configure script would also be nice to
check that a C# compiler exists and to capture the installation
directory.  A mono-tools.spec would also be good to create RPMs for all
the mono-tools.

Any ideas on how to do this?
