Oof. I don't think it's terribly easy to add context to a block-copy
diff format. Maybe Branko has ideas on this. But I thought svndiff
was only going to be used in cases where we expect to have the entire,
unmodified diff source to work with.

I think you're a little confused about the "custom diff program"
feature people are talking about. This is for the output of the "svn
diff" command, which generates user-readable data rather than svndiff
data. You may still be right that no user is going to care, but it
turns out to be a very easy feature to add (as long as we don't run
the diff program on the servers).
