My problem is that I do not have write access to the CVS so I cant add 
the new files, hence I cannot use cvs diff for these files.

What would be the simplest way for me to submit such patches that 
contains both modified and new files? I'm tempted to submit an ordinary 
patch for the modified files and a tgz for the new ones. Will that do?

This script you were talking about sounds interesting. Would it be 
possble to get it?
