Has anybody written a wrapper script around cvs diff for a GUI front
end like xxdiff?


      cvs diff -r TAG1 -r TAG2 <other diff opts, e.g. -NBbwi >

find the differing files via Index: lines, then create two temp
directories with the two different versions and use xxdiff to compare

There is a project called xxdiff-cvs-diff, but it doesn't take any cvs
diff options -- it is intended only to selectively diff or commit
current changes.

This isn't hard to do, but it seems like somebody on this list might
have already done it, and it would save me a couple of hours of
mucking around.
