How to use svn diff to create a list of visitable files with line numbers in the Emacs compile buffer

Here is how to use the svn diff output within the emacs compile buffer to generate a handy list of files with line numbers that you can click on to visit every bit of code you've changed:

M-x compile

svn diff |\
perl -ne '/Index: (.*)$/ && ($name = $1);\
/^@@.*\+(\d+),/ && print "./$name:$1:diff\n";'
