If the file exists at that revision, supply the file; otherwise, don't.
Committing the file and then running "svn diff -rPREV:HEAD" on it would
show no changes.

These cases are easy; there are probably lots of much harder ones, and
plenty of internal implementation details that would make doing this
difficult. That's why what I gave is a suggestion, not a detailed
feature proposal; I don't know SVN internals well enough to do that.
