Just pointing out... may not be related to your question or the answer
thereof...
  svn diff -r BASE:HEAD
  lists a revision 0.. what is this revision 0 ( I gather from your mail that your wc
  is at r1 and the HEAD is at r2. where is this 0 coming from?

  Same question with one of the number usage scenarios you are pointing out...

  svn diff -r 1:2
  Also lists a revision 0.

Am wondering why a revision 0 is coming into the picture...

Regards,
Madan.
