Is this comparing last pristine copy against local modifications, isn't?
What about if the pristine copy is from version 229 and the repository
head is at 220. Is there change to lose some modifications with that diff
(specifically from 221 to 228?) or will svn diff found somehow that it
has to contact to repository, and therefore it will produce diff against
r220 vs. local mods?

(Just wondering, haven't use subversion over a month, shamefully forget a
lot, and I don't have any dev-machine at the moment...)
