Well sure, but then when someone checks in a change that involves
renaming or adding a subdirectory somewhere, your tree is silently
broken without any warning or indication, and you have to track it
down. This can be a lot of head scratching and cursing until you figure
out that cvs was too dumb to add the directory to your repository.
I prefer to always use cvs up -dP outside of toplevel, which I update
with cvs up -lP.
