Oh, I should add that there's also "svnlook diff"; it would probably
be much easier to get the diff and apply it to the working copy than
to script something that works with "svnlook changed" and "svnlook
cat". I must admit though that I'm not entirely sure how to use
"svnlook diff" to do this, since usually you get a diff between two
paths, or between two revisions of one path, but in this case you'd
need the difference between HEAD and the transaction. But I think
"svnlook diff" is still where I'd look first.
