Are you sure?

I mean, when a file gets updated, it first "materializes" in the tmp/
area by means of applying svndiff data to the pristine file.

I then believe that 'diff' is run between the pristine file and the
newly materialized file, and this difference is applied to the working
file via 'patch'. I think this happens every single time.

[Hmmm, if this *is* true, it's not efficient. If the file isn't
locally modified, then the newly materialized file should just be
copied over both the pristine and working files. I should go check.]
