cvs doesn't ignore anything during updates.  If you add a dll file then 
it uses it.

By default it ignores them during import (and a whole lot of other file 
types) as they are compiler output and most people don't store those - 
but there's nothing to stop you adding and using them if you want, or 
changing the defaults.
