I think I got this right ...

Create a batch file (eg. C:\FALSE.BAT) which contains the single line
@exit 1

TortoiseSVN->Settings->Edit subversion config file.
Uncomment the [helpers] section
Add a diff-cmd setting:
diff-cmd = c:\false.bat

That will cause all automatic merges to fail and force your working copy
into the conflicted state, and will generate the different files you
want. Because this is a subversion config, it should affect all SVN
clients including TSVN and Subclipse. It is global to your PC, not
