Huh? If you run 'svn diff --diff-cmd foo', it should pass the paths
of two temporary files to your 'foo' program. Your 'foo' program can
be a visual, graphical program.

Is that not happening for you?

Hmmm, odd.... when I run

  $ svn diff --diff-cmd /usr/local/bin/gtkdiff

I see

   Error on option -u: unknown option.

I wonder why we're passing -u to an anonymous diff program...
