 That's fine, and thanks for asking.

 No,
 in that thread Bert was just describing the current
 technical
 situation behind the current
 behaviour. It is a bug and I would like
 it
 to be fixed.
 
 I filed issue
 #4567, "svn diff --summarize with --ignore-properties
 or
 --properties-only":
   http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4567
 
 It merely requires somebody to
 invest the necessary time and effort to
 design and implement it.

 Will do. Your enquiry has
 sparked some discussion on #svn-dev IRC
 channel where Stefan Sperling has already
 proposed a patch to
 implement it: http://colabti.org/irclogger/irclogger_log/svn-dev?date=2015-03-23#l35
 
 It looks very likely that we
 will.
 
 Thanks for the
 prodding!
