Brilliant! Thank you for wanting to help in this way. Please do write
to the svnbook mailing list.

Also I want to think about ways in which we could improve the
Subversion's support for plugging in external diff tools. This could be
by

  * changing/improving the interface
  * providing some ready-made diff helper scripts for common diff tools
  * providing some easier way for users to select what diff they want to
use

So ideas and patches for that sort of thing would be very welcome too.
