>>> So what is the benefit of you getting the files via yet another
Sweet! But I think the goal here would be to have the blame data seamlessly integrated in the diff command. The need to use a separate command for it sort of defeats that purpose.
Is there any other data from SVN that you are planning on adding to the diff except for the blame information?
>>> Also, I think that you could fairly easily try this modification
Well, the good news is that TortoiseSVN is already able to provide the info you need, without you having to get the data "on the side". A patch could then provide another special keyword in "Settings"->"External Programs"->"Diff Viewer" where you set your external diff viewer. For example in addition to %base the keyword %blamefile could be used to indicate to TortoiseSVN to create a blame differences file and to pass the path to that file to the external tool in place of the keyword. This would however have the downside of slowing down all diff operations...
If you make a clean and nice patch I think it should have a good chance of making it into the next release. Just make sure to post it as soon as possible to be able to get feedback on it and to have time to make any suggested changes in time for 1.7. Good luck!
