But would there be any interest in such features in the Subversion
client? As I understood from Jim Blandy the functionality is just
there to allow people to use their own scripts for interesting file
types. Also I understood from Garrett Rooney that the functionality
(using --diff-cmd and --diff3-cmd) is kind of "half-assed" and that
there is no mechanism (yet) to do "interesting" diffs/merges based on
mime-types (say: application/xml). Or perhaps this functionality
should be part of some third-party Subversion client and not in the
"official" Subversion client?

Sjoerd.
