I don't care how we call it. Most of the time you can use svn diff +
patch(1). But currently it's not guaranteed to reproduce the correct
tree.

I think the 2 use-cases (local changes vs patch-input) are as Malcolm
says mutually exclusive. Before we start discussing actual
implementations (I'm already sorry I added that example!), I'd like a
list of requirements and a proposed solution to discuss. After that,
we can discuss how to build that into Subversion. Agreed?

bye,

Erik.
