The problem is where several mods are in the same file, and worse if they
appear in the same hunk together. You're then not only forced to adjust the
+/- line and range numbers in (to me) non-intuitive, but also cumulative
ways (line number changes higher up are supposed to ripple downwards).

One solution that just ocurred to me is to copy my build folder, strip mods
I don't want included from the source files first, and then diff against
CVS. Is there an easier way though?
