        Perhaps I was unclear. I want to diff the actual working copy
        file. SVN's --old/--new so far as I can tell only use the
        meta info from the WC to look the URL up and then it does
        a URL to URL diff from there. Unless I missed something it
        can not do a diff between the actual (possibly modified) WC
        and a URL?
