Or, define some new revision keywords:

   svn foo -rBEFORE:N
   svn foo -rAFTER:N
   svn foo -rN:BEFORE
   svn foo -rN:AFTER

to take care of N-1 and N+1, and

   svn foo -rWORK:N
   svn foo -rN:WORK

to mean the working file. (I'm not volunteering for this, just
pointing out that we're free to add keywords -- and probably should,
even if we change the defaults).
