svn commit invokes $EDITOR not where svn run from

Hi, ok, it's clear that svn is cd'ing to the root of the working copy,
to do some stuff, and then directly invoking $EDITOR from there.

In another SCM product ;-) from a subdirectory I often do the
equivalent of 'svn diff > diff.out', then 'svn commit', and read
the diff.out file into the editor, and edit it down to a change list.

Ok, it is possible with svn but by specifying paths relative to
the WC root, not to the directory in which I invoked svn.

Is it possible for svn to cd back to the original directory immediately
before invoking EDITOR?
