Re: svn diff -r PREV:COMMITTED <file>

Well, this also begs the question, why do we have code in multiple places to
define HEAD, PREV, and COMMITTED? If they WERE in one set of common
routines, this case wouldn't obviously be happening. :)

Something like svn_convert_alias_to_revision(...) No matter what svn
function you are calling, HEAD is HEAD, and PREV is PREV, and COMMITTED is
COMMITED, no? Different for each file/dir, yes, but not for each command

This would also prepare the way for issue 1213 of PREV, PREV2, PREV3, etc.
