That sounds like a GUI thing.  CVS doesn't have such a concept as
'hidden' - the .cvsignore changes the way import behaves, but the
files will still be there.

I know WinCVS doesn't read the global cvsignore (because it would be
too expensive to contact the server all the time).  Not sure about
other GUIs though.
