Right, but not necessarily a patch that you could apply - more a patch
for review. There's no reason you couldn't (for example) run 'svn log
--stop-on-copy --show-unidiff .../branches/foo' to review all work done
on a branch so far, as individual changes.

(For extra credit, I'd like a way to skip changes that were the result
of merges - can we do that already?).
