Probably because I injected it late in the thread.

  1. show local mods in a working copy
     svn diff
     (or: svn diff file1 file2 ..., if only for some files/dirs)

  2. compare a wc path with a different version of itself
     svn diff -r M path
     (or: svn diff --old=url[@REV] path, to compare against a branch)

  3. compare two specific versions of a wc path
     svn diff -r M:N path
     (or: svn diff --old=url1[@REV] --new=url2[@REV] path, to compare
      path in two different branches)

  4. compare any two arbitrary repos paths/revs
     svn diff --old=url1[@REV] --new=url2[@REV]

  5. compare a wc path to an arbitrary repos path
     svn diff --old=url1[@REV] --new=path
