I think if 'svn diff --diff-cmd="diff" "my file"' works well then
'svn diff --diff-cmd="diff -ubB" "my file"' should be ok too. If
the file name starts with '-' or '--', we can use --diff-cmd="diff -ubB --".

I have checked the source code, but I need some time to understand it
because there are many many apr functions.
