Ok, in my example, it subversion has substituted $Rev$ -> $Rev: 2 $. But
when I undo this substitute, I thought svn diff should notice, that it
is unable to "un-substitute".

Nevertheless, now I think this behaviour of diff is correct, because the
format of the diff file is not able to express such a unsubstitution by
the user. (These thoughts always come to mind directly after sending a
mail about such "bugs".)

Anyhow, I think, revert should resubstitute the value, don't it?
