Yah, what's confusing to me is that files of status "A" always show up
as a bunch of '+' signs. But files of status "A +" aren't mentioned at
all by 'svn diff', *unless* they also have local mods. In that case, we
see just the local mods.

This is a tricky UI problem. On the one hand, the "A +" isn't really
new, it's a copy. So if the user is running 'svn diff' in order to
examine local mods before committing, the current behavior makes sense.
But if the user is running 'svn diff' to generate a patch, then the
current behavior is broken.

Any ideas about how to satisfy *both* use cases?
