You are right, it would be handy. I thought -I! would do the trick, but
it does not.

I would vote for such a change. ;)

In the meantime, there is a work-around for this problem without a need
to manually move or delete files: Use cvsu --ignore (cf.
http://linux.die.net/man/1/cvspurge) from the cvsutils
(http://www.red-bean.com/cvsutils/). This command with this option does
exactly what you want to achieve.
