cvsignore-ing everything but .cvsignore

Part of the tree of web files I'm working on contains a subdirectory
structure full of arbitrarily-named files uploaded by users.  When someone
checks out the module, I would like this folder to be created, but empty. On
subsequent updates I'd like to ignore all of the files in each directory,
since they will never belong in the repository.  I'm trying to solve this
with a .cvsignore.

My problem is that I don't know if there's a way to cvsignore all files
*except* the .cvsignore file within each directory.

Unless there's a better way to handle this altogether.

Let me know if I've explained this badly.
