Well, not every one can use a GUI. I often use Subversion via a
remote ssh connection, and a GUI would be much too slow. However
I agree that svn should remain quite simple, and something like
"diff 5 changes before revision 123" is not common, and probably
not very useful (except with an interactive tool).

Now, I'd like very much more common things such as the following
suggestion:

In -r N:M, N or M (but not both) may be -, in which case this means
one change before the other specified revision.
