I would *much* prefer a relative diff, unless the relative diff is
larger than the full diff (which I think is unlikely).
The original diff was 6000 lines.  Reviewing that again is very time consuming.

If you made the mistake of failing to save a backup copy at the
time you posted the diff, you can recover it by checking out a fresh
copy and then applying the cvs diff using to that using `patch'.
This may take you some time, but I think it will be less than the time
it would take either Tyson or I to review 6000 lines for a second time.
