I was wondering what is the best way to do something that I cannot find

I want to have cvs keep track of some files in a directory where I will have a 
lot of other files appear.
The problem is that of course I only want CVS to consider the files it keeps 
track of and I want it to ignore all the rest.
This is something similar to what .cvsignore does only not quite: In the .cvsignore file 
I can put sh-style patters for files to be ignored but, since I don't know what kind of 
files will appear in this directory, I want to implement a behaviour similar to 
.cvsignore but where I can say "ignore everything except files that match these 
Is there any (standard) way of doing this?

Am I confused? The last I looked, this was the default behavior for CVS, provided you don't do something like `cvs add *`. That is, CVS will see those other files, but will ignore them, since they don't exist in the repository.
