Ah, sorry, I didn't realize that.

OK, in that case I see two possibilities:

- add the flushing to libsvn_client/diff.c in the hope that it is the
appropriate thing for all clients, not just the svn command line client
(which I tend to think is true; at least I can't imagine that it would
hurt anybody); or

- live with the fact that diff output doesn't have the level of
streaminess that would be nice to have. Diff would then be no worse
than it is now, but all other subcommands would be improved; to me this
improvement would outweigh the inconsistency.

I could live with either.
