No, not exactly.

You are all assuming that the commit mail is generated by "svn diff",
but it's not. It's a server-side hook, and as you can all see in kde-
common/svn/hooks/post-commit.pl, the diff comes from
"/usr/bin/svnlook diff".

Whether this supports ignoring whitespace or not, I don't know,
but if anyone wants to look into this, then look into the documentation
for svnlook.
