What Prabhu's '--diff-copy-from' do is 'get the modification to file *alone* done in a same commit as copy'.

Without this switch it would show all the lines as 'added' with this switch it would show only 'the modified lines'.

While debugging some issue I could see 'svnlook diff --diff-copy-from' doing exactly the same and asked Prabhu to do the same.
