If only I knew C++ I would have contributed long since...
Maybe you could file an issue?

I prefer a "Changed Properties" dialog in TortoiseProc over a
list of changed properties in TortoiseMerge, so you can use a
different diff tool for viewing property diffs. With 1.4.0 we
will have support for binary properties and TMerge doesn't like
binary content, yet.

Good point. If we could view a unified diff for a single path
(e.g. in the lower pane of the "Log Messages" dialog, "Changed
Files" dialog), that would be a quick workaround. Does svn support
that?

Kind regards
