I think Alexey meant only the cases where we currently error out, i.e. where
exactly two targets are given and one is a path and the other is a URL.

I didn't realise this but there is indeed no ambiguity in allowing this
syntax as a shorthand for a corresponding '--old X --new Y' diff invocation.

Thanks Alexey, see
Making these invocations produce a diff instead of an error makes things
less surprising for users.
