Hi Bo -- Yes, they were developed by March Hare to help round out CVS 
Suite for business users.  They are only available with CVS Suite at 
this time.

They are only used by WinMerge.

If you use TortoiseCVS and choose Diff, it will invoke WinMerge and the 
plugin will help WinMerge display the diff.

You can also use the manual method you describe.
