Basically, I think we want two things different from your proposal:

  * On the property front, I think we want to be a little less generic.
Teach the client about trunk, branches, and tags. This generic "kind"
stuff will be too hard for users to wrap their heads around, and will
require extra typing every time you use the command.

  * On the syntax front, I'm not sure that thinking about this in terms
of URL transformation will yield good results. "svn diff
--old=branch1-shorturl/file --new=branch2-shorturl/file" doesn't seem as
natural as the more CVS-like "svn diff -r
branch1-specifier:branch2-specifier file".
