There is a slight complication with this.  Not a really big deal but
one everyone should remember.  Svn diff does not show moves or
renames. Only adds and modifies.

Those can only be done by someone with commit privlidges.  So they
will have to either describe what they want to do or create a patch
with non svn methods.
