The find command is flexible enough to do most of the work itself:

$ find . -type d \( -name CVS -prune -o -print0 \) | xargs -0 -n 10 cvs
add --

and this variation should be safe regardless of what crazy characters
are present in filenames.

$ find . -type d -name CVS -prune -o -type f -print0 | xargs -0 -n 10
cvs add --
