Yes - by multiple instances of TMerge.

Other that svn diff --summarize and svn status, svn log --verbose
doesn't tell me whether properties or content have changed -
is that true for the API you use, too? And isn't there an API that
can return you a list of changed properties?

On double click I wouldn't mind another single round trip to
the server but if you had to fetch a property list of both revisions
and than two revisions of each property to compare them, then that
would not be acceptable, of course.

I guess I'll have to look for some human readable API documentation
for better suggestions.

Kind regards

Sven
