yeah, this would be helpful for some people. i personally am not
sure how the links/commands are added to commit messages, or who
would be the right person to ask, but unless (or until) it happens,
you could just as easily write a small shell function which greps
the current cvs version of a file, updates the file, and compares
the previous version with the new one. that will also be kinder on
the cvs server if you use a local server. and also doesn;t require
pasting.

there's also the web interface: http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/
