This will also update the working tree! (People not familiar with
CVS don't always know this)
So I would suggest:
cvs -n update 2>/dev/null | grep '^\?'
to just SHOW the new files and not update the working tree, while
we are at it. 'cvs update' should always be done interactive,
because it can lead to merge errors, which need to be fixed manually.
