Passing just the revision is not enough to allow the server to provide
the svndiff. It really needs the fspath and the revision (or the update
report) to fetch the base revision for a path in a separate (stateless)
request while supporting switched paths.

The problem that client cannot figure out URI of delta base to use.
Actually subversion/ra_serf/update.c:1876 has big #if 0 block with
FIXME that it should be fixed, but nobody fixed it before :)
I see only one proper way to fix the problem: Introduce
X-SVN-Base-Revision request header to specify base revision instead of
arbitrary URI (X-SVN-VR-Base). But we definitely have to fix this
before svn 1.7, because now Subversion over ra_serf retrieves full
text instead of deltas on each update.
Since I don't have a chance to work on this issue on weekend I
reverted my change in r1141995 just to make buildbots green.
Btw during testing I found that externals_tests #25 over ra_neon also
fails if "SVNAllowBulkUpdates off" is configured on server.
