Note that the patchfile will not contain changes such as directory
additions or deletions, and I'm not sure how property changes would
be handled. Not sure how it would handle file deletions either. In
other words, it's probably great if you've only ever changed existing
files. As soon as you do more than that, "svn diff" doesn't show the
whole picture.
