There's not an automatic way to do it.
I had a similar situation, and wrote a cvs wrapper that would
shuffle the directories around.

>From memory, it went something like this:


# restore the cvs directories to their correct place

cd $BKUP
for i in `find . -name CVS -print|sort`;do
    b=`dirname $i`
    mv $i $TOP/$b
    echo mv $i $TOP/$b

# now do the cvs command

cvs $*

# move the cvs directories away
# (you have to do this one time in the beginning to
# initialize the BKUP dir)

cd $TOP
mkdir -p $BKUP
for i in `find . -name CVS -print|sort`;do
    b=`dirname $i`
    mkdir -p $BKUP/$b
    echo mv $i $BKUP/$b
    mv $i $BKUP/$b
