See also the files svndiff.sh and svnfilemerge.sh (attached) from the
svnX program which also does it this way.

It would seem to be the better solution to pass a switch to opendiff to
tell it to wait for FileMerge to exit before returning, but there does
not appear to be any such switch -- at least not that I can see from
its brief usage message.
