I'd like to see that syntax implemented, so I try getting your first

diff (di): display the differences between two paths[1].
svn diff [-r N[:M]] [--old=OLD-TARGET] [--new=NEW-TARGET] [FILES...]

Displays the differences between OLD-TARGET and NEW-TARGET.
If FILES are given, displays only differences in those files [2]

´-r N:M´ is a shorthand for ´--old=URL-OF-YOUR-WC@N

TARGETs can be local wc paths and repostiory URLs
OLD-TARGET defaults to "BASE", NEW-TARGET to ´.´
Thus ´svn diff´ in a wc shows your local modifications.
[...more use cases?]

[1] not sure about "paths" here. "entities"? "resources"?
[2] add something to clarify FILES are living below (both) TARGETs?
