Unfortunately, the whole world doesn't run Unix...

C:\foo\bar>find . -exec cvs add {} \;
'find' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

It's no big deal to get a Unix-style find utility for Windows,
but that isn't the point.  I've never understood why cvs add
doesn't have the option to work recursively when most other
cvs commands do.  This issue keeps coming up on info-cvs.
I get the impression that there is no real technical reason,
but there is a philosophical belief that vendor branches are
a Good Thing, and everybody should use them whether they want
to or not.
