Whups! This is _not_ what I meant. Diff should notice ancestry by
default regardless of how it is invoked. What I did say is that

    diff -rX:Y URL

should (by default) not necessarly mean the same thing as

    diff URL@X URL@Y

which can happen if there was a rename in URL between revsions X and Y.
And definitely

    diff URL1@X URL2@Y

should, be default, notice if the two parameters happen to be related,
regardless of the different name.
