Paul, +1 to commit. Here's a new patch, exactly the same as yours
except with a custom error message, because the generic one wouldn't
be clear in this scenario. The generic one just said "A path under
version control is needed for this operation", to which the creative
user might reply "But of course it's under version control, it's in
the repository!" :-)
Feel free to change the custom error message if you think of a better
phrasing, of course.
Return consistent error on svn diff of special revisions BASE, COMMITTED,
or PREV when operating on a URL.
The original impetus for this patch was to stop svn diff 1:BASE URL from
asserting, and to provide a more useful error message.
Approved by: kfogel
(svn_cl__diff): If the starting or ending revision against a URL is
BASE, COMMITTED, or PREV return an error.
