It's mostly for consistency. Also, I'm adding a --diff-options switch
to SVN::Notify, which only uses svnlook, and I don't want to add code
to determine the location of svn (even though it's likely to be the
same). It does enough crazy shit as it is. :-)

But while I'm on about this, there is one GNU diff option I'd *love*
to have in Subversion's diff support more than any other: --minimal.
Or even --ignore-all-space would be useful. It'd make quite a few of
my diffs a lot smaller.
