I see svn_types.h as a "global" header. With stuff that is globally
applicable to almost everything. But if you look at svn_types.h, there are a
lot of things that are a bit weird:

* svn_error_t : good

* APR_ARRAY_IDX : probably should go to apr_tables.h

* svn_node_kind_t : good

* svn_revnum_t and assorted macros : good

* boolean stuff : sucks to do it yet again :-), but good

* a TON of property stuff. kinds, catgorization, prefixes, names, entry
  attributes(!) : what is this stuff in here for? answer: because
  svn_types.h is the least common denominator. the kitchen sink. these
  aren't types, but definitions. and they aren't globally useful. for the
  most part, they are client/WC things.

* keyword definitions : similar to props

* svn_log_message_receiver_t : a type, so "okay", but it really is kind of
  from left field.

* SVN_STREAM_CHUNK_SIZE : decent, but more of an svn_defs.h kind of thing

Anyhow, with the diff thing, I see that more as a function of svn_io.h or a
higher-level svn_subr.h type thing. But svn_types? nah...
