Thanks. That works, but I also got some odd results. Specifically,
this works properly for a single file:

    svn diff --old=file:///h:/repos/project/live/html/base.inc --

As does this for all files:

    svn diff --old=file:///h:/repos/project/live/html/ --new=.

However this:

    svn diff --old=file:///h:/repos/project/live/html/base.inc --new=.

(by which I meant, compare the named file in the repository to the
current directory, implying -- to me -- the same file in the current
directory) yields an error:

    svn: Cannot replace a directory from within

Now, what's that supposed to mean??
