I had assumed svn would allow you to do

svn diff foo.c <some-url>

but it seems to give the error message:
svn: Target lists to diff may not contain both working copy paths and URLs

Why is this disallowed? It is such an obvious requirement, and would solve
most of the use cases of people who want labels.
