Sadly, all the TortoiseSVN users I know (my team members on a
university project) have no clue how to do basic operations like
"diff", "revert", "switch", etc. which are simple in the command line,
but you have to find the right menu option (diff is "Create Patch", I
think) for it.  I'd like to tell them, "just run 'svn diff'", but they
have no idea that there is even a command line for Subversion!
