wrong diffs for python on the kde-commits list

not sure if this is the correct mailing list for

please look at

svn diff -r1199190:1199191 kdegames/kajongg/src/board.py

in trunk. This is rather much output.

The kde-commits list shows a very short diff 
which I can reproduce by svn diff -b

but in Python, leading whitespace has a meaning, and
the diff on kde-commits is just wrong.

So - does anybody actually apply those diffs? If so,
kde-commits should use different options for diff.
Would it help to define them in some per-directory
svn config file? Or use an external diff script which
does not ignore whitespace for *.py, or should all
this better be postponed until after the git transition?
