Very close... as in, we have it.

'svn diff' uses internal diff to generate the diff. -x is useless (for

'svn diff --diff-cmd /path/to/diff' uses /path/to/diff to generate the
diff. You can make this permanent by setting diff-cmd = /path/to/diff
in the [helpers] section of ~/.subversion/config. -x passes arguments
to the external diff command.

Ok, we can get rid of diff-cmd and SVN_CLIENT_DIFF right now. The diff3
stuff is a bit different. I haven't merged over the internal merge code
yet because there is no opt out (yet). I'm guessing we will need a
merge-cmd option (and we will need a merge_fn once we move to the provider
scheme). Anyway, thoughts on whether we should move to internal or hold
off on it until we have an opt-out?

I'm trying, I'm trying. Only so many hours in a day...
