Re: [PATCH] calling diff_summarize from SVN Perl bindings

I have checked that the patch builds against current trunk, but I don't
understand SWIG so need someone else to review/test/commit it.

I have attached the latest version of the patch (with the POD fix, from
from Mon, 19 Jan 2009 21:08:59 +0800) as a diff against trunk_at_35343,
with the log message included (tweaked just a little).

James did include a log message initially, he just forgot to re-send it
with the updated patches. It looks the updates will not require a change
to the log message.

Yes, indeed. Sorry for the large number of emails about this. Thanks for
the patches!
