Actually don't know some of the others you mentioned, so its a bit pushy
of me but it's very good compared to ExamDiff (files only) and VisDiff
(currently vaporises if I click on "directories").
I recently went through the process of importing >8000 files into a
repository and exporting them to create a point of comparison to be
doubly sure they all survived to round trip.
And then Beyond Compare was able to assure me all the files and
directory structures were faithfully reproduce able, with one one
exception. Currently SVN doesn't support retaining the original file
dates which for me represented their history prior to being put under
svn control.

So TSVN 1.1.3, SVN 1.1.3 and Apache 2.0.52 with an fsfs repository did
their job very well.
