so here's a .cvsrc file which should help people:

cvs -z3 -q
diff -uNp
update -Pd
rm -f

btw, is there any option to cvs diff which produces files which can be
applied by any known version of patch?  in my experience, patch can't
find files specified by Index: lines _unless_ both the +++ and the ---
files can't be found -- which is rarely the case with common names such
as Makefile or ChangeLog.  I hacked a copy of patch myself to apply one
of the cvs diff patches you posted here, but there surely has to be a
better way (complaining to Paul Eggert that while patch may or may not be
POSIX or GNU compliant it isn't _USEFUL_ may be the right answer here :-)

Revolutions do not require corporate support.
