My project has to deal with several parallel branches that has to be merged
continuously to deliver different versions to different clients.
Recently some people in the development team has set a plugin that
automatically remove trailing spaces... 
So a great deal of modified lines are just layout changes that I would like
to ignore when merging to avoid many conflicts.
Is there a way to lauch the cvs update command with the same behavior one
can have with the diff command (ignore whitespace, ignore trailing space...

Thanks for your help,
