Then you can use any Diff-Tool like WinMerge or KDiff3 to diff the whole
WC tree. Just check out another WC of trunk and compare it to the WC of
the branch.

Or you just do the merge into a trunk WC but don't commit it.

The author could even look at the unified diff output from merge dialog
(harder to read but you see the changes).

I don't see any better way in Subversion to do something like this...
