Ignoring whitespace changes in 'svn blame'

This seems the right timing for a bit of designing.

My two-step, completely unresearched thought for 'svn blame' is:

(a) Make 'svn blame' use the generic 'diff' facility (i.e. internal or external
diff, at the user's choice). Give it the options '--diff-cmd' and
'-x/--extensions' (yuck, bad name). This will immediately give 'svn blame' the
ability to ignore space changes and the like, by using an external 'diff'.

Does anyone have an idea of what's involved in doing that?

(b) Give the internal 'diff' some options such as to ignore whitespace changes.
  This can be a completely independent enhancement.
