This "find ... | xargs ... cvs status ..."  works okay,
except for the fact that it manages to cause 
something in the path from cvs on my client,
via ssh and rsh, to the machine on which cvs server
is running, to die pretty dependably, hanging for 15-30
minutes, until something starts it up again.

I think I'll munge CVS/Entries.
Fragile, but reliable.
