Why is that? Why not assume that the first argument of a pair is the old
version, and the second the new version (or the other way round, if it matches
user expectations better). Why insist on this extra syntax?

And, if this extra syntax is necessary, why is the error message so unhelpful -
if it said "try svn diff --old <url> --new <url>" you might have a clue what to
do next.
