This can be done by adding
to the end of _cvs_add. I'm not keen on doing this in the distributed
_cvs but you could use your own replacement _cvs_add function.

I don't remember there being a style to do this, perhaps there should
be one.

You might also want to have a look at the _all_matches completer. Don't
be tempted to try to bind the _all_matches completer to the specific
context of cvs-add with zstyle though because completers are determined
long before the context is elaborated to that level of detail and it
won't work. Personally, I bind a key to it which I can use in situations
such as this. The necessary lines from my .zshrc being these:

bindkey '^Xx' all-matches
zstyle ':completion:all-matches::::' completer _all_matches _complete
zstyle ':completion:all-matches:*' old-matches true
zstyle ':completion:all-matches:*' insert true
zle -C all-matches complete-word _generic
