Thank you very much for writing and providing this script.

I agree that this problem looks like a bug. If you have time to
do so, please file an issue in our issue tracker.

The problem also affects 'svn diff'.
A reasonable expectation would be that the reverse of a diff which
adds something is a diff which deletes something, but in this case
the reverse diff produced by SVN is an empty diff:

$ svn diff -c2 ^/trunk/A  
Index: foo
$ svn diff -c2 A          
Index: A/foo
$ svn diff -c-2 A
$ svn diff -c2 ^/trunk/A  
Index: foo
$ svn diff -c-2 ^/trunk/A
