Well, -r M would be shorthand for "--old=my-wc-url@M" and -r M:N would
be shorthand for --old=my-wc-url@M --new=my-wc-url@N. But yeah, we'd
probably have to allow them for ease of use.

I do think folks should look at this seriously (unlike CMike's straw man
with "svn diff --compare" followed by any even number of arguments), but
I'm not 100% convinced that it's better than having an iterative "svn
diff" and a comparative "svn compare" and just punting the "iterate
within a comparison" functionality.
