svnlook diff output for moved + modified files

   I have been playing around with the commit-email.pl script and I noticed that
if I do something like:

svn mv file4 file1

   Then I get an email (with output from svnlook diff) that says:

Copied: glue/trunk/src/file1 (from rev 40, glue/trunk/src/file4)

   However, if I move a file and then edit say just the last line prior to
committing it, I get:

Copied: glue/trunk/src/file4 (from rev 39, glue/trunk/src/file1)
--- glue/trunk/src/file1 2005-03-04 05:39:36 UTC (rev 39)
+++ glue/trunk/src/file4 2005-03-04 23:05:00 UTC (rev 40)
@@ -0,0 +1,5 @@

   But this diff output looks like I changed (i.e. added) the whole file. I
realize that the diff is acting only on the add portion of the transaction, but
it would be nice if it could actually perform the diff against the file that it
was copied from since it obviously knows what it is.

   I realize this is a rather minor issue and I could certainly perform these as
separate transaction, but it would be difficult to enforce our developers to
separate them.
