Diff, ignore & deleted files

        Dear Sirs,

I have switched from CVS to subversion and I'm happy with the increased

However there is one little problem that is causing me some trouble.
The scenario is as follows:
- I imported an source of a program to keep track of my local changes.
Things went fine.
- The program uses automake and I had to rebuild the Makefiles.
- I ran svn stat and noticed a lot of M Makefile.in.
- I ran svn diff and noticed that diff was very long and full of changes
concerning Makefile.in files that I rather not see.
- I decided to delete all Makefile.in files from the repository,
svn:ignore them and rebuild them.

An here comes the problem:
The files deleted from the repository and ignored still clutter the diff
if I compare with the original version. I could use --no-diff-deleted,
but there will be occasions when I want to see other deleted files and
old hide the ignored ones.

So is there a way to solve this currently or should I file an issue
request for adding a --no-diff-ignored flag for svn diff?

        Yours Sincerely,
                Christer Nyfält
