Great, I'll give these a shot (thank goodness for cygwin!). In the long
run, I suppose an svn summary output that listed renames, additions, and
deletions directly would be nice -- haven't tried it yet, but I'm
assuming that the tools above will not handle those situations
correctly. Even better would be to stick with the unix philosophy and
have some sort of modified patch output from svn that included tree
changes, and an associated toolset for piping. Might that be in the
works, or at least being thought about?

Cheers,
Raman
