TSVN creates the patchfile file-by-file, while the svn client creates
the patchfile in one go. The reason for this is that with TSVN, you can
select the files you want the patchfile to contain, while with the svn
client you can't (at least not if you just run 'svn diff > patchfile' on
  your working copy root).
