It should be universal by now, but it isn't. I was using editors back
in my DOS days that could do this, but it seems like half these spiffy
GUI IDEs I have to use can't. Grrr...

Hey, cool! I've been wishing for 'svn diff -w' since starting with
svn, and didn't see that I could get the feature externally. I'll
stick with 'svn diff' for day to day use, since I still want to know
about whitespace changes, but I've now got an sdw alias for when I
need to see past them:
alias sdw='svn diff --diff-cmd /usr/bin/diff --extensions -bdtuwB'
I added -u. I really like unified diffs.

I'm the same way about vi...which I've been using since before I got
into DOS. :)
