I think this feature-request (and the Issue as well) borders on what
functionality TSVN reasonably can/should provide. The problem with how
to handle deleted files, for example, is not very easily solvable...
(Text-file-listing does not seem that elegant to me at least.)

This might be one case where we just should keep our hands of, and let
each company that needs it write a small script that outputs the set of
changed/moved/added/deleted/whatever files in a format that suits them.
(Parsing the output of "svn log -q -v -r R1:R2" should not be that
difficult... (Tip: Add -xml for extra spice.))

Then we can all sit back and wait for subversion to come up with a new
augmented patch-file format that solves this problem the way it should
be solved... (Assuming you can provide ignorant users with a small
script that will apply the patch for them.)
