Feature request: relative revisions

Given that subversion maintains a global revision number over the
repository, we lose the ability to do find out [with a single command],
say, what changed over the last N revisions

This could easily be supported with some extra syntax in the client; for
example, when looking back through recent changes, one could do:

svn diff -rHEAD-1:HEAD [currently this is same as svn diff -rPREV:HEAD]
svn diff -r-2:-1 [assuming these numbers are being interpreted as
relative to HEAD, which seems sensible, at least from a python p.o.v.]
svn diff -r-3:-2

which would be cool. Currently, it's necessary to do svn log to find out
revision numbers. It would be good if the client could do this
