Yes, except getting 'svn wdiff' recognized probably requires wrapping
svn itself. (I didn't think of this, so thanks!) My scripts are just:

1) in .bashrc: alias swd='svn diff --diff-cmd wdiff-svn.sh'

2) wdiff-svn.sh: wdiff-colours.sh "$6" "$7"

3) wdiff-colours.sh: wdiff "$1" "$2" | awk -f /path/to/wdiff-colours.awk

4) wdiff-colours.awk: contains the primary output munging.

Like I said, it's really a wdiff fix, but it's been so useful to me that
I thought I'd post to svn dev.
