you would need to specify it as with --diff-cmd (or in the ~/.subversion/config/).

that said the idea would be to write a general purpose wrapper script
that checks for the matching diff tool based on the file
extension/mimetype. than you can specify this general purpose wrapper as
diff cmd and it would call openoffice for OOo docs and gnu diff for text
files. i just wonder how this interacts with the binary check of svn.
svn diff normally dont diffs binary files.

just my 2 cents


           openSUSE - SUSE Linux is my linux
               openSUSE is good for you
