Maybe some variant of the cluggy and ugly...

        $ cvs up -Cp <file> >/tmp/$$<file> ; diff args <file> /tmp/$$<file>

When comparing the working version of a file against a version in the
repository and the RCS style diff flag (-n) is specified, the output of the
command is information which would allow you to convert the file in the
repository to the working file.  Is there any way to make this do the
reverse, that is, produce the differences that need to be applied to the
working version to get the version in the repository?
