I'm not sure why you'd want to export everything in the repository
except for CVSROOT, but you can do that by defining an alias module for
the root directory that excludes CVSROOT.  For example:

        top -a !CVSROOT .

Unfortunately, excluding directories doesn't work when you use -d, so
instead of the above you'd have to do:

        mkdir xxx
        cd xxx
        cvs export -r yyy top
