Charles pointed out on IRC that this is only true for repos-related
diffs, not wc-wc diffs; if you schedule-delete a directory, 'svn diff'
will happily tell you about all the files you've deleted. This is
because the wc diff driver *never* calls the dir_deleted diff
callback. I'm not sure which behavior is better.
