Hi --

Sorry for the delay getting back to you; Thanksgiving holiday
intervened and I'm only now catching up on my email backlog....

1. You're entirely right about the --remote-user option.  I'll remove that.
2. I'll merge with the latest version from CVS.
3. I'll do that; I prefer -u myself.

>     3. Please post the next patch with GNU diff's -u option.  It's easier
