I think that .cvsblock is silly; the tiny semantics difference between
that and .cvsignore is not worth it. The cvs add command should ignore
things that match .cvsignore, period. Those who disagree: what part of
``cvs'' and ``ignore'' isn't clear?

An interactive error would be a reasonable compromise. The software
notices that the user requested to add files which match the .cvsignore
specification, and so brings up a menu: add this file anyway, skip it,
apply this action to all the rest.
