I like your general idea that this is really about a list of files,
not changes. But note that -F is already taken (anyway, in a previous
post I argue that we shouldn't take a new shortopt right now).

I think that's an interface issue that our commandline client will
never address anyway.

In http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2007-01/0501.shtml, I explain this
in more detail. Please ignore that parts of that mail that are
generic objections to the changelist feature -- we've already settled
that debate. But the mails arguments apply to diff-hunk selection and
other extensions of changelist functionality.
