I would love to see the -r flag more usable for me. As subversion uses
global revision numbers, mine can be very "cheesy" which means they have
huge gaps in between, as I have a lot of different projects in my

So now I would love to see the diff for a file for the last X changes.
Of course I don't know which rev was the working copy - X, so I have to
search through the logs, count down to X and then make a -r with the
right number.

I would love to see a wy to say

$> svn diff -r HEAD-5 foo.c

so I can say, show me the diff from 5 commits before the current checked
out working copy of 'foo.c'. The same would be great for log too. Or I
want to know the latest committed and 5 before that, what cahnges

$> svn diff -r HEAD-5:HEAD foo.c

wouldn't that be great?

One more thing:

I really have _no_ idea what the difference between HEAD, BASE and
HEAD is the latest in the rep. but the other toos. the explenation just
doesn't make any sense to me ...

Although I use subversion for some time now, i don't count myself as a
professional user, so please point me the documentation or how to use
it, if it is already doable, or where this is described.
