Recursive update

I haven't tested this, but can anyone tell me the expected behaviour of
cvs update -dlP
i.e. create missing files and directories; don't recurse; prune old files 
and directories

Does the 'don't recurse' command stop recursion into newly created 
directories?  Put another way, will this command correctly create a new 
directory structure and its files?  I'm trying to improve the performance 
of an automatic update script, which currently recurses through a large 
(and growing) directory structure, so the commit takes a looooooong time!
