Well, -r N already has a meaning in "svn diff". Since this feature
would be nice for diff as well as merge, it might be nice if we adopted
a syntax which could work for both.

(This is different from the argument that "merge has to be as much like
diff as possible", which I think is weaker because the diffs you can
take for a merge are a subset of the diffs you can take for a diff.

I'm undecided on whether -c N is worth consuming an option letter for or
if there are better syntaxes. I'm not likely to throw in a minus vote
at this point, though.
