Re: rfc: proposal for new "svn diff" behavior

I'm not sure if my ignorance here makes this a Stupid Suggestion or a
Really Stupid Suggestion or something else, but how about making
non-positive revnums relative? The syntax would be

$ svn diff -r --1:1598

For (rev-1):rev. Ugh. Maybe you can use a character for "relative revnum"
(I'll use "@" not knowing the implications, any appropriate character will

$ svn diff -r -@-2:1598

For (rev-2):rev. Then you can use two @'s for relative to the head...

$ svn diff -r -@-1:@

For (head-1):head.

Anyhow, if this is a dumb idea, feel free to ignore me.
