Well, I like browsing through the diffs (its fun to see, how it grows)
and I don't care much about this bandwith issue as long as they are
kept below 5 MB or so.  However I would prefer unified context diffs
(created by diff -u).  They would take up only half the space and are
(which is more important) much much easier to read.

I'm not very familar with CVS, so I would like to know which
tool/script produces these mails?  I've asked one of my employees,
who is more familar with CVS, but he also didn't know.
