"cvs diff -u" is the preferred method.

Is it possible to make this configurable by letting
the user specify whether the file is to be added
or duplicated with the default option set to duplicated?
This would ensure backwards compatibility as well
as let the user take her pick.

If you can come up with testcases, it would make
it easier to cross-check stuff.  Turnaround time
to get it committed will also improve.

In your code, I noticed that you have used //
to comment private variables.  Use commenting style
recognized by javadoc instead.  Please also provide
valid javadoc comments for all methods that
you introduce.
