My concern is that it doesn't seem to cope easily with the case where
there are several directory levels between the repository root and the
{trunk,branches,tags} level. A real solution will need to work easily
in a repository that has URLs like

svn://long.name.of.server/long/path/to/repository/long/path/to/project/branches/branchgroup/branchname/long/path/to/subdir/file

Sorry, but as a user, I want to be able to do

        diff -r branches/othergroup/otherbranch filename

or something that involves approximately the same amount
of typing as that. I don't want to have to remember or
calculate a number of path components to drop or retain,
and I don't want to have to type any part of either
"svn://long.name.of.server/long/path/to/repository/long/path/to/project"
or "long/path/to/subdir".
