	Yeah. You can actually still create patches against CVS if you want, if
you're just posting them for review and not checking them in yourself.

	If you want to use bzr, making a bzr patch is just:

	bzr diff > some-name.diff

	You don't have to specify -Nu or anything like you did for CVS. You can
even do "bzr add" to add new files so that they'll show up in your diff,
even if you don't have write access to the bzr repository.

	One difference is that bzr supports moving and renaming of files, so
instead of doing "bzr rm" and "bzr add" to change the name of a file,
you'd want to make sure that you used "bzr mv".
