dirs_same_p and summarizing diff

Hi Julian,

many thanks for your much-needed clarifications on the editor/diff callbacks
frameworks! I'll try to put them to practice.

lol, that bad :)
I wonder why the merge tests using it to compare directories are passing, then.

What about another case I encountered today in ./merge_tests.py 88 89:
 foreign-repos <> wc

A diff doesn't work, but a merge does (test script attached):

A wc1/file
Adding wc1/file
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 1.
A wc2/file
+ svn diff --old=file:////arch/elego/svn/test/repos1 --new=wc2
subversion/libsvn_ra_local/ra_plugin.c:266: (apr_err=170000)
svn: 'file:///arch/elego/svn/test/repos1'
is not the same repository as
+ echo

+ svn merge -c 1 file:////arch/elego/svn/test/repos1 wc2
Conflict discovered in 'wc2/file'.
Select: (p) postpone, (df) diff-full, (e) edit,
        (mc) mine-conflict, (tc) theirs-conflict,
        (s) show all options: e
Select: (p) postpone, (df) diff-full, (e) edit, (r) resolved,
        (mc) mine-conflict, (tc) theirs-conflict,
        (s) show all options: r
--- Merging (from foreign repository) r1 into 'wc2':
A wc2/file
C wc2

So, if we were to add a summarizing-diff before each merge, it would break
all foreign-repos merges...

I fixed all but merge_tests.py 88 and 89, the foreign-repos ones.

Also, I haven't actually checked *all* of the commandline tests. It takes
ages to complete, with apparent longer breaks of doing nothing at all, when
watching the CPU and disk activity.

And then I have to run it twice, once for trunk and once for my patch, to be
able to compare test outcomes. How do you handle this kind of situation?

...and, I think I'd like to open a micro-branch for this thing. I can just
decide about that myself now, right?
