This is one of the features that has been requested several times, and
is on the agenda for after we hit 1.0.  Subversion is trying to limit
it's first round of functionality to 'What CVS does, minus the worst
problems'.  After that, we'll get to work on the other cool features

Thank You!!!  It is so annoying having to install the port of
gpatch...  If you could also remove the FreeBSD specific hacks to
diff, it would be quite appreciated (see
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/ac-helpers/gnu-diff.sh for the
script we use to ensure we have a working version of diff).
