How is it exposing the implementation? Or do you just mean by virtue
of being called "-u" / "--show-updates"? Its output is certainly
nothing like `update's output.

No, we're not reserving all possible diff option letters, because that
would make virtually everything unavailable for Subversion. :-)

Instead, we're going to have a --diff-options (or whatever) option,
which takes an argument -- a string of options to be passed along to
the diff program. (And someday we'll no doubt have a --diff-program
option as well, taking you-know-what as an argument.)
