  I'm using the TortoiseSVN shell extension plugin, but not the svn binary utils.
I will try the latest to see how the 'svn diff' can help.

  Yes, the test 23.vector.modifiers fails to compile due to ambiguity
between 2 similar overloads of the make_iter() function (because
ConstFwdIter<T> inherited from FwdIter<T> and can be used in call to
make_iter(, , , FwdIter<T>) while ConstFwdIter<T>, inherited from
FwdIter<const T>, cannot).
