I am also thinking it might be a good idea to add a repository
independent base functionality to the post-review script where it is
handed the root directory of two source trees, before and after the
change and it will then just compare the files and post a review.
This way anyone with any source repository can just create the before
and after soure trees outside RB and pass the roots of the source
trees to the post-review script for posting.
This won't work as Review Board needs to be able to access the respective SCM
repository from the server-side to apply the posted diff to the base revision.
For the server this is true. RE the client,
http://reviews.reviewboard.org/r/1197/ sort of does this. It allows any
diff to be sent to reviewboard .... but it had better be a valid diff :-)
