Re: svn diff on renamed files

Hmm, when I wrote my original mail I figured there was actually some way to
do the svn diff, it was just inconvenient. Now it's seems that you just
can't do the diff at all, even with full paths to the repository:

svn diff --old url/old.txt@4 --new url/new.txt@HEAD

doesn't work (or any of the other combos I tried...it keeps looking for
new.txt@4 for some reason). Am I missing something? Bug 1093 is marked as
post-1.0, which seems like a bad idea since this really limits the utility
of being able to rename files in the first place, which is a big selling
point of svn relative to cvs. It seems like the --old --new args are just
broken to diff?

Or am I missing the magic syntax (in addition to a clue)?
