I now tried it. With subversion-1.1 you actually don't seem to need the 
old path. A "svn diff -r:<oldrevision>:<newrevision> /new/name" works 
as expected even if the oldrevision is before a move.

I still haven't figured out how to revert a move, though. There doesn't 
seem to be an equivalent of "cvs up -j" taking into account file moves.
