I don't remember the outcome of past discussions, but I disagree.
I've long wanted 'svn patch', for two main reasons:

   1. Property diff application.

   2. Conflict markers!! Regular 'patch' will just crap out on
       conflicting hunks -- this behavior is poo. 'svn patch' could
       behave just like 'svn merge', except from a stream source
       instead of a repository. :-) Now tell me that isn't Goodness!
