Not really. "svn diff -r foo -r bar $SVNROOT/path/to/file" isn't much
worse than "cvs rdiff -r foo -r bar path/to/file".

That wouldn't work for cat (since cat has no idea how to operate on an
SVN repository) and I think would be a bad idea in general. I think
Wilfredo was assuming that "cat" would be a subversion command, much
like the CVS "update -p". (And arguably, that functionality should be
a separate command; update -p doesn't share much in common with update
in CVS-land.)
