No, they are never equivalent; -p1 strips everything up
to and including the first slash from every pathname,
-p0 doesn't.  You *always* need to use one of -p0 and
-p1 fwiw.

Sounds advice.  For some reason "svn diff" seems to
generate -p0 style patches; every sane tool in the world
uses -p1.  Oh who cares, either style is trivial to
deal with.
