Because I want to see what code change was made in that revision.

Sometimes it's because I think there might have been a bug
introduced in the code changes made in the file, and so I
want to review the diffs.

Or there was a piece of code removed in that revision that I
want back now.

Or, in the most recent case, it was a change we made to a
third party library. I had a new version of the library,
and I needed to re-apply the change.

I'm not sure I understand your answer though. I think maybe
I didn't explain the test case very well. The file is present
as a/b/c in both x and x-1, it didn't get moved to x/b/c
until x+4000.

However, I have now remembered that I was able to retrieve
the diff from the command line by doing:

   svn diff -r5431:5432 svn+ssh://blah/my/repo/a/b/c_at_5432

Thanks,

Joseph

PS. Sorry for having hijacked another subject... not sure
what to do about it now though :-( I thought my problem
was related, but I'm pretty sure it isn't now.
