Generally, if you use 'cvs add' and then cvs diff (or maybe cvs diff
-N? I don't remember), this works. However, you might need to have
commit access to do it that way; CVS is awkward about that. I have a
little script that just looks for the "? Filename" lines and replaces
them with the appropriate diff.
