+1. If the help text states that --no-svndiff1 is an alias for
--pre-1.4-compatible, it'll be clear that the two concepts are one and
the same. This solution makes the effect of the flag clear (i.e. it
makes your repository compatible with Subversion 1.3 and earlier by
disabling svndiff1). Obviously a flag which disables svndiff1 will not
automatically make BDB 4.4 and/or FSFS compatible with Subversion 1.0.
