New CVS tools

I've made two small perl scripts, mostly for my own pleasure, but I guess it
can be useful for others as well.

The first is an interactive front-end to CVS for syncing some local working
directory with the CVS repository.  It checks over (using cvs update) to
find modified files, new files/directories, removed files and collisions. It
then gives a menu of possible actions, including editing the file and
viewing the diff.  It's (of course) less efficient than using a crude "cvs
commit" at the root of a cvs module, but it's far more efficient than
manually committing, adding and removing individual files.

The second script gives some kind of simple "tripwire" functionality for the
cvs repository.  It creates a log file with a timestamp and the md5sum of
all files.  Later the script can be used for checking that nobody have
tampered with the RCS-files.

I don't have IP access at the moment, so I'd be pleased if somebody could
help me to publish those scripts at a proper place.
