As far as I remember, diff is the only odd-ball: it interprets HEAD as
the head of the current branch rather than as the head of the trunk. 
It's "always" worked that way and we've been loathe to change it for
fear of causing upward compatibility problems.

Not as a synbolic name, but as long as you haven't screwed with the
revision numbers (which you shouldn't), you can use the numeric revision
