That's it! What ever you can check out (including multiple repositories
or projects) you can explore! Remember that each directory contains the
URL for that directory in it's .svn/entries file. Therefore, all
clients will go to this file to find out the URL of the server to diff
against. Therefore, if you have two repositories checked out, use the
GUI or CLI of your choice and execute the commands you want.

I use all three interfaces (CLI, tortoise, rapid) at the same time,
because each have their pros and cons. They all work well together.
