No, TSVNMerge was created to present a GUI interface for handling
patchfiles generated by Subversion for use within Subversion Working
Copies. Nothing more, nothing less.

Now, if a feature is easy to support outside a working copy, the
developers may be willing to incorporate it. But only if they are
asked politely and only if the feature is deemed useful.

However, I don't think support for processing non-subversion patch
files outside of Subversion Working Copies qualifies for inclusion.
