Bert, Philip,

There seems to be more than one problem in that function.

The 'ignore_ancestry' flag should probably be passed to svn_wc__get_diff_editor(..., ignore-ancestry=ignore_ancestry,
...) instead of passing (..., ignore_ancestry=use_git_diff_format, ...). But then where should
'use_git_diff_format' be used?

The 'reverse' flag is used twice: once to construct a reversing filter that will reverse the
results; and then again the flag is passed to the diff generator to tell it to generate reversed
results. Wouldn't this cause a double-reversal?

I haven't tried to debug it.
