One Project - Multiple VCS or VCS roots?

We are currently using VSS for 2 projects, and CVS for another. These really are all just different parts of the same project.

Is it possible in IDEA (either currently or with the new module setup) to setup both VSS and CVS for the same project?

I can successfully define different VSS projects, and map them the the correct working directories on my local drive. But, if I want to work with the CVS hosted project, I can't add it in, it's either VSS or CVS.

Any solutions here? Or solutions planned?

I can't speak for that directly, but what I was able to do is check out
multiple CVS modules within the same project AND a cvs module inside
another CVS module and IDEA still knew which updated where... it was
pretty amazing... if it's a bug don't fix it! :)

So you might want to try it.

We plan to have a per-module VCS, that it you will eventually be able to
setup one module of your project to work with CVS and another with VSS.

A small refinement: we plan it but not for Aurora (I think the next
version).

Just to clarify:
VCS API: per module VCS config already in Aurora as of 939
VSS: not based on VCS API yet => no per molule VCS configuration in aurora (are you going to migrate to VCS API first?)
CVS: already done
Starteam: ???
