Perhaps you missed the point. Without '-g', "svn diff -g ^/subversion/trunk ." shows us the difference between the *current* state of trunk and the current state of our branch. That's fine if you've just moments ago done a catch-up and told everybody else to hold off committing for a short while; but the use case we're addressing here is where want the diff between an *older* state of trunk (whatever state we last caught up to) and the current state of our branch.
