Do I understand correctly, that

  $ svn diff *.h

wouldn't work anymore?

Please correct me, if I am wrong, but considering that CVS's default
usage is the iterative one (if I understand it correctly, you get the
comparitative usage only when you specify two revision numbers), don't
you think that this will irritate CVS converts?

Again, I am not strongly for/against it (I like the simplification,
but will miss the use case above), but just wanted to make sure the
implications are understood (okay, honestly, that *I* understand
them ;-).
