No.  The sole purpose of .cvsignore and related features is to prevent
CVS from constantly reminding you that certain files in your working
directory are not under its control.

Fine print:  It also does serve to prevent ignored files from coming
in during a cvs import, which is sorta like keeping them from being
added to the repository.
