thoughts about svnpatch

I'm currently playing around with the new svnpatch feature. I haven't
got it working quite yet though, but I'd like to propose some

* applying an svnpatch file only works if the patch file is applied to a
working copy. Would it be possible to make this work for unversioned
source trees too?
* I'm missing a dry-run function to preview what applying the patch
would do - there's a 'dry-run' variable in the patch code, so I guess
this is already planned?
* I would also like to have some kind of filter for svn_client_patch so
only items which match the filter will actually get patched. That way I
can present the user with a list of affected items (with the dry-run
feature) and then let the user choose which of the items (s)he actually
wants to patch.
* does the svn_client_patch() only work with svnpatch files or also with
unified diff files? From browsing through the code I think it should?
