In reality, because Subversion's branching is so cheap in terms of repos
size, if you really need to do this a lot, then it's valid to create
another branch and check the files into that so you can do the diffing
and trial merging between versioned files. When you have finished with
the branch you might benefit from SVN deleting it too.
I like to kill off branches that have served their purpose to reduce the
chance of accidentally checking out superseded code and wasting time
messing with it.
