Massive cvs migration

I am planning to move perhaps a million files int cvs prom a previous
source control system.

In some of my tests, I mangled binary files due to not flagging them as

I've run a script on one module to gather all the extensions used.
There are perhaps 60 extensions that need to be added as binary files.

My recursive script to add the files uses a simple "cvs add *", so we'll
have to rely on cvswrappers to map the extensions.  

A few questions:
Does each case of an extension need to be mapped? ("doc" AND "DOC" and
"Doc") (someone initial-capped an extension.

Is a cvswrappers file with 120 entries going to cause performance or
other problems?

Is there a better way to go about this?

Perhaps I add each file individually and if it's not clearly a texty
file, we add as binary?
