It is consistent with current "svn patch" behaviour.
I never meant to argue that there was some consistency with the
rest of svn.

Yes, and that is why it's a separate problem.

We can implement the whitespace ignore matching parts,
while getting context from the patch as we do now.
If folks want us to copy context lines from the target instead of
the patch, that can probably be done. But it is a different problem.
Let's not mix up two different problems.
