   For what it's worth (not that it changes whether we should ask
Blair for feedback), mine's not a derivative; I didn't know there was
another script with a very similar name until I noticed it today.

   Weird:

wsanchez% ./svn-viewdiff --help
svn-viewdiff: usage:
     svn-viewdiff [options] file1 file2

options:
   --help Print this help
   -c Ignored
   -C --context X Ignored
   -u Ignored
   -U --unified X Ignored
   -L --label X Ignored
   -q --brief Ignored
   -y --side-by-side Ignored
   -w --width X Ignored
   -l --paginate Ignored
   -t --expand-tabs Ignored
   -T --initial-tab Ignored
   -d --minimal Ignored
   -H --speed-large-files Ignored

   I'll see if I can figure out what's going on there.

   I can fix that up.

   Thanks. In that case, it was pretty necessary. Hard to explain
that one in a one-liner. :-)

   Docs: no problem; I agree.
