Someone earlier said there are a lot of diff tools, and none of them
have all the features of the others. I think that Tsvn could easily
have all the features of the others with just a little more polish.
Really, I think it's only missing the two that were mentioned,
emacs-style diffs per line, and editing conflicts. Then it would be the
best diff/merge/patch tool available, and everyone (svn, cvs, sccs, rcs,
and no scm tool) would want to use it.

That's why, Simon, you should not be surprised when people show up here
who are only interested in TMerge. I joined this list looking for a
general purpose diff tool.

That's also why I would like to see TMerge decoupled from TSVN. I don't
want TSVN, and I've run into a couple of problems because, in some cases
(patching?) it assumes svn when I wasn't using svn. Modularity good.
