Hmmm. Not sure I understand the question, actually. Why is tkdiff
running "cvs up -p" to *diff* a CVS file? Why not just run "cvs diff"
instead?

Currently, subversion implements plain "svn diff", but not yet

   svn diff -r xxx
   svn diff -r xxx -r yyy

nor does it implement "svn update -p" yet (though it might be some
letter other than `p' when we do implement it, whatever). The up -p
functionality would be easy to add; the -r option to diff will be a
bit more work, though it's also planned of course.

Would like to understand the tkdiff's motivations better, though...
