I think cvs import is the best option, using a specific vendor branch.
You should consider each new directory structure as a third-party
When importing a structure on the vendor branch, your current head is
not changed before you apply a merge on a working copy and then commit.
So the recursive addition in the repository is solved and you have
control on what your head becomes after the merge.

You should read the following part of the reference manual:

It considers that the vendor branch is used at the first import, which
creates the structure. 

I have no idea if it possible to do a first "vendor" import on an
existing structure in the repository and what happens then. You should
test it.
