That's exactly the point he was trying to make. The "smart" proposal
would have meant:

        $ svn diff trunk/foo tags/0.14/foo

would be equivalent to:

        $ diff -u trunk/.svn/text-base/foo.svn-base trunk/foo; \
          diff -u tags/0.14/.svn/text-base/foo.svn-base tags/0.14/foo

(unless I misunderstood this part of the smart proposal.)
