The design doc is at
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/branches/svnpatch-diff/notes/svnpatch.
 It doesn't tell how to use the feature but instead how it works,
though.

Anyway, using the feature is as simple as appending --svnpatch to 'svn
diff' subcommand to produce the output ('svn help diff' tells about
the option), and then use 'svn patch' to apply the patch ('svn help
patch' also available. (Oops, I have to update this help section so
that users know Unidiff isn't supported right now.))

So, in a nutshell,
  1. svn diff --svnpatch > /path/to/output.patch
  2. svn patch /path/to/output.patch .

Cheers,
Charles
