Please tell us what you forgot about it or what is interesting about it.

(If that command shows the diff against the file's copy-from source, whereas an "svn diff -cX new_foo" doesn't, then that would be an interesting observation because I would expect "svn log --diff" to show "the change that happened in a revision X" and I would expect that to be the same as "svn diff -cX".)
