You know, I actually misspoke above. I forgot that we have
ra->do_diff() (there was a time when diff used ra->do_switch). So,
actually, there are a couple of issues:

   - ra->do_switch() doesn't support the file case
   - ra->do_diff() doesn't support the file case

Or, you could just fetch the source file, fetch the target file, and
run svn_diff_do_diff(). Forget the txdelta stuff altogether. :-)
