So what interface are you proposing? I think we can cover all
possible use cases with

   svn diff [-rN[:M]] [target ...]

which iterates over the targets and compares the two versions of each
target, and

   svn cmp [-rN[:M]] targetA targetB

which compares the two targets against each other. The diff command
would do BASE:WORK by default, the cmp command would by default
operate on WORK for wc_path targets and HEAD for URLs.
