Actually, this isn't a bad idea - looking at modules and including all  
things that aren't in the module spec.  At least in theory.  Where it  
breaks down is that modules can be of the form:


Though you could just construct the relevant canonical path and  
determine if the canonical path is still under the current project,  
and if so - exclude it.

As to how, if your scm doesn't support an exclusion, then you'd have  
to find all children, do an SCM -N on the parent, then iterate through  
all non-excluded children and do an update on those.  The problem  
isn't (likely) one of unfeasibility, it's one of making it relatively  
clean.  If it's too messy, then it can be a bear for the user to
