We should be able to add such an exception.

>I don't agree with the post by Travis that XML documents can't be merged. It might cause problems in some instances, but I think in most cases any merge that would break the XML would be recognized as a conflict by the text merger. However, this did make me realize that a product like Subversion could benefit from treating XML specially. A Google search on "XML diff" turns up several XML-specific "diff" utilities that understand the hierarchical structure of XML. Should I submit this as an issue for a future feature?
No, why? You already have --diff-cmd and --diff3-cmd, you don't need any
other special features in Subversion.
