rfc: proposal for new "svn diff" behavior

From: Karl Fogel <kfogel_at_newton.ch.collab.net>

Currently, "svn diff -rREV" means diff REV against the working copy.
This is not terribly useful. Does anyone ever really want this, when
REV is not HEAD :-)? (And if it is HEAD, then there's no need to pass
a -r at all, of course.)

Proposal:

   $ svn diff ===> continues to diff HEAD against wc
   $ svn diff -rREV ===> becomes equiv to "svn diff -r(REV-1):REV

This optimizes the common case: seeing what changed in a given
revision.

(If someone really wants the old behavior, they can still do

   $ svn diff -rBASE:REV or
   $ svn diff -rREV:BASE

"BASE" is a recognized keyword.)

Thoughts?,
-Karl
