You're aware of 'svn st -u', right? It will at least give you an
overview of exactly how your working-copy is out-of-date, even though
it won't show you the detailed diffs.

Yes, I believe that after weeks of debate, Philip actually implemented
this new 'svn diff' syntax. Unfortunately, there's no actual *code*
in the back-end to support your use-case yet! See issue #1142.

No, the book is out-of-date on many subjects; it hasn't been updated
for a few months. Look at doc/book/TODO for a complete list of things
we need to add to the book. Fitz/cmpilato/I will be catching up on
this list in July.
