I tried something like this:

cvs -d <cvs root>  rdiff -f -s -D 2008-11-01 <directory>

to list deletions since 11/1, but it doesn't seem to work, not sure if
it's because the -D is not used correctly.

Then I came across the history command, which seems to do exactly what
I want:

cvs -d <cvs root> history -a -D 2008-11-01 -p <directory> -xR

So I'm all set, except I'm still not sure what went wrong with rdiff
