Oh I was just complaining that cvs sucks when done on recursive diffs. 
It's fine otherwise.  I've meant to write a simple perl script which takes
"cvs diff -u" output and generates something closer to what "diff -ru" 
would generate -- i.e. with full filenames in the appropriate places.

I use "cvs diff -u" for 99% of the patches I post.  It's only when the
diff hits files with the same basename in multiple directories that it
becomes an issue.
