git log vs. svn log

Hello SVN developers.. I'm greatly missing two features from svn log
command that are featured in git log:

1. git log --stat shows commit diffstats
2. git log -p shows commit patches

Two examples should clarify these options:

$ git log --stat

    Add documentation of -i and -o [DOCUMENTATION]

 pmr.c | 15 +++++++++++++--
 2 files changed, 27 insertions(+), 4 deletions(-)

$ git log -p

These two options really made version control logs useful for me, so I
really hope to see these features in SVN in the future (I can not
use git at work). It's annoying to live without them ;) Note, I'm not
switching to version control GUIs, I want to use command line tools.
