+1. I think this dogfood is ready to eat, even if there are a few
features missing.

The trick, though, is picking the right run-time configuration method
for the future. (Not that we absolutely have to get it right this
iteration, but it would be nice.) Is the right answer a --diff-program
option? A mime-type to diff program mapping in ~/.subversion/config?
Should the existing "-x" option signify an external diff program for
now? (Should it go away in the long term, to be subsumed by internal
long options?)

There are many possible colors for this bikeshed. :)
