svn stores its metadata in .svn/ directories (like the CVS/ directory),
thus, -I .svn should suffice.

Anyway, I think the OP wants to be able to commit both to SVN and CVS
from one sandbox, right? This might work, if you checkout your
"upstream" SVN and check that in into CVS. I think importing the .svn/
directories into CVS, too, might make sense to be able to update the SVN
sandbox from every checked out CVS sandbox.

Now, if you want to get a new SVN version, just update it (svn up) and
commit it into cvs (cvs commit).

As told, I have not checked this in practice, but I believe this should
work. Anyway, I am not sure if I would use it that way. Pierre's
suggestion might be better.
