As I explained before I don't know how to use CWS. I look
at http://hg.services.openoffice.org/hg/cws/gnumake4/
And I see a tree, and some loosely related changesets.
I am interested in knowing all that changed in the branch
from the time the branch was started ... therefore diff.

svn diff ?? I have no problem with SVN, my problem is
getting readable changes from a CWS.

Branching on SVN seems pretty easy, just copying a tree to
another directory and cherry-picking changesets to merge,
sorry if I am oversimplifying it ;-)
