To be clear, I have major UI issues with us altering our 'svn diff'
output like that without calling it 2.0 and even then, I still get the
heeby-jeebies as 'svn diff' is essential to so many people's workflow
(okay, I admit it - maybe it is just me who uses 'svn diff' with
patch) that I think altering 'svn diff' to not be patch(1)-able is
going to cause us loads of grief. -- justin
