This may be overly simplistic, but it seems that a very simple script would
suffice, based on the fact that "cvs add" returns a "failure" exit code if
you try to re-add an existing file.

To wit:

    for i in `find .`
        cvs add $i && cvs commit -m "batch addition" $i

(initially, I'd done some grepping of the "find" output to exclude ".",
"CVS", etc, but it turned out after testing that "cvs add" fails on those
automatically, making the script even shorter)
