That command would also show changes made on trunk that have not yet been
merged to the branch.  (E.g., if you ran it in on subversion's trunk and
1.9.x branch, it would show -SVN_VER_MINOR 10\n +SVN_VER_MINOR 9\n.)

The OP asked for the changes merge would do, which is approximately
   --old=TRUNK@REV --new=BRANCH
where REV is the youngest revision of trunk merged to the branch.
("Approximately" because this is inaccurate when cherry-picks or subtree
merges hapepned.)
