Using svn diff is correct, but you can specify more than one file at a time, a 
directory or nothing at all, in which case it will diff all changed files.

e.g. svn diff libs/ > libs.diff
       svn diff file1.cpp, libs/file2.cpp, libs/mythui > the.diff
       svn diff > all.diff

Rules are:
One diff should be used for closely related changes. Mixing simple changes in 
with more complicated issues isn't advisable - it will quite likely delay the 
simple changes being applied, or the whole lot may even be rejected. Remember 
that the less time it takes to review and commit, the better for the devs who 
are looking at tickets in addition to their own work.

A separate ticket should be opened for each bug or feature. So if you've only 
been addressing .size() related issues, a single ticket will be ok.
