I am thinking of something like this:

I separated the diff and the shar files - diff for what is already 
existing, and shar for new files.

Are you saying that you would prefer if I had done a single diff with 
"diff -urN"?

Part of the reason I started to do this is because, even when I had 
clear messages like "there are new files XXX and YYY" they would still 
get forgotten by committers.
