Feature request

Hi there.

One tweak I would like to see made to cvs is concerning the
`cvs diff` command.

On my Red Hat Linux based system, I note the following line in
the output of the `man diff` command...

        -b      Ignore changes in amount of white space.

...which describes a feature that is very useful when somebody has
reindented the code in a particular file, so one can see the changes
that have been made without having to decide for each and every line
whether it's just a tweak in the whitespace layout.

Is there any possibility of this being implemented in the `cvs diff`
command or is this considered too esotoric a facility?

Best wishes from Riley.
