Well, I toyed with proposing something as nasty as a single command:

   1. svn diff --compare [-rN:M] PATH1-LFT PATH1-RGT [PATH2-LFT PATH2-RGT ...]
   2. svn diff [-rN:M] [PATH [...]]

In other words, --compare requires an even number of targets, each
pair compared to each other, possibly using the -r modifiers (or gosh,
we could use '@'-syntax here for *real* precision.

But this is just getting sick, folks.
