No, that's really not how it works.  Patches are supposed to be against
the latest from CVS.  And it's also not cumbersome, it's rather quite
simple.  CVS is doing that for you usually anyway.  If you have a
patched CVS source tree, just call `cvs up' and the current HEAD is
merged with your local changes.  Given that wasn't
changed for a while anyway, you should not see any merge conflicts.

That's ok.  It's just much easier to examine the changes if
they are provided in logically combined snippets.
