[TSVN] Feature suggestion re generating Patch.

In an earlier thread <[TSVN] Patch tool not including new file in added
folder> resulted in issue 175. A fully populated patch file could not be
created from uncommitted changes if they included new folders with files.

Maybe if "added" files were also marked "modified" they could be
included in the diff? (just musing because I really don't know the inner
working of svn). Sound like a request for the svn list though.

Pity svn doesn't support this because all the info to go into the patch
is available in the local WC folder. I really don't want to checkin the
modifications, just to create a test patch.

So currently the only recourse is to undertake the more tedious process
of committing the changes and then use the merge tool to generate the patch.

Accepting that mods have to be checked in, it would be simpler then if
the TSVN Patch dialog could itself optionally take a revision and
generate the diff between that and the current revision of the WC.
Subversion appears to do this with <svn diff -r123 . > mydiff.patch

Desire 1 would be to have the patch tool create a patch which did
include newly added folders and files as well as file changes.
in lieu however:-
Desire 2 would be to have the patch dialog take a revision to generate
the patch file. (where svn does include added folders and files)

Do I make sufficient sense?
