quick survey: diff --summarize output

Hi all,

which `diff --summarize' output do you prefer?

1) Current implementation on trunk:
The very long url is repeated on every line, and it always
shows the `old' URL.
[[[
$ svn diff --summarize \
    --old=$VERYLONGURL/foo/@2 \
    --new=$VERYLONGURL/quux_at_3

MM $VERYLONGURL/foo/modified_file
 M $VERYLONGURL/foo/modified_dir
M $VERYLONGURL/foo/modified_dir/file_in_modified_dir
]]]

2) New implementation I'd like to merge to trunk:
Only print the paths relative to the target.
[[[
$ svn diff --summarize \
    --old=$VERYLONGURL/foo/@2 \
    --new=$VERYLONGURL/quux_at_3

MM modified_file
 M modified_dir
M modified_dir/file_in_modified_dir
]]]

The current "normal" diff for the same case only prints the difference
between the target URLs:
[[[
svn diff --old=file://$VERYLONGURL/foo_at_2 \
         --new=file://$VERYLONGURL/quux_at_3

Index: modified_dir/file_in_modified_dir
===================================================================
--- modified_dir/file_in_modified_dir (.../foo) (revision 2)
+++ modified_dir/file_in_modified_dir (.../quux) (revision 3)
@@ -1,2 +1 @@
 file
-more
]]]

Does anyone see a reason why implementation 2 would be no good?

Thanks
~Neels
