I still don't understand why we have SVN_EXPERIMENTAL_PATCH. The whole
patch feature is in-progress. What "funny business" needs to be
protected? There is no legacy "right way" where changes need to be
excluded.

If you're altering the *diff* output, to enable some Git diff headers,
then please add a (cmdline) option to do that. The default can't
change for compat reasons, so the option will be required.

If this #define is protecting something else, then ... what? and why
would PATCH be in the name?
