diff -s ?

Checked the issue tracker but didn't find any reference to this (at least
not among new/open issues):

Is there any planned support for summarized output of the diff command
(along the lines of cvs rdiff -s)? For those not familiar with the feature,
it limits output of the command to the names of files that have changed
between the 2 tags/revisions, and lists their from/to revision. In CVS it
looks something like this:

cvs rdiff -s -r tag1 -r tag1 module
[...]
File path/to/file/foo.txt changed from revision 1.5 to 1.5.22.1

in SVN, it could look something like

svn diff -s http://repository/tags/release1 http://repository/tags/release2
File path/to/file/foo.txt changed from revision 100 to revision 115

100 would be the last revision prior to tags/release1 that included a change
to the file, 115 the last revision with the release1-release2 range that
included a change to the file. The output's semantics might have to be
subversisfied, but you get the general idea

With CVS, I use 'rdiff -s' extensively for incremental builds. It would be
nice if I could port Ant's CvsTagDiff and my incremental build task that
depends on 'cvs rdiff -s' from CVS to SVN. Also, there's bee

Any thoughts?

cheers
Rob
