Thanks a lot for the links, -- I'll study them. I have no intention
to raise the heat on this issue even higher indeed.

So, this particular issue aside for now and returning to the initial
problem, aren't there any proposals/suggested patches to add an option
to the 'cvs diff' to include "unknown" files into the output the same
way it now includes locally added but not committed files? Does such
extension somehow interferes with the cvs way of doing things?
