Re: Easy comparisons between related trunks, branches, and tags

I'll admit, I'm less than fond of patch's -p option. It has always seemed to
me like a workaround for the absence of a clear convention on how tree
patches should work. That is, if diff and patch had been designed together
with entire trees in mind, you'd never need -p; you'd just think that whole
idea was weird.

In the Subversion context, if I'm in some subdirectory of tree A, I should
be able to do comparisons in the corresponding subdirectory of some parallel
tree B without counting parents.
