The closest I can think of is to use TortoiseCVS
(http://www.tortoisecvs.org/), which is a CVS Windows Shell extension.
You can right click your top level directory and select commit. Tortoise
will then show all the files below this that have been modified with
checkboxes next to them. You can then just select the files you want to
commit, enter a message and commit.
