CVS already represents changes, so it seems like change bars could be
generated using 'cvs diff' somehow.  The main drawback would be that
anyone who wanted to print change bars would have to have both versions in
their CVS repository.

Another way would be to include the previous version of the documentation
in the distribution, and use 'diff'. 

The output from 'diff' isn't perfect but I don't think editing change bars
by hand would be much fun.
