Hmm, you're right. You can get the changed paths that way. Better
yet, add the --summarize flag, e.g. to get the changed paths in the
Subversion source between versions 1.5.2 and 1.5.3:

svn diff --summarize http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/{1.5.2,1.5.3}

I was thinking of how to get the log messages for the changes between
two tags. That's not so easy.
