I like Julian's approach (does it still work for you, David?).

I think the state of the discussion is: someone (me, actually)
clarified that you are only requesting info which is indeed available
at client side, and was waiting for someone who knows the guts of the
diff engine to say "oh, you're right, that info *is* available."

If someone appropriate said that, I think we'd file an enhancement.
But I think it looks like a "post-1.0" thing: your users are
inconvenienced, but have a work-around that gets them nearly there
(do the diffs consistently from the top of their trees, so the path
roots are familiar). Is that a fair impact assessment?
