I don't see the necessity of this. Subversion allows commands like:

svn diff \
    http://scm.sipfoundry.org/rep/sipXportLib/tags/2.8-export-L@HEAD \
    http://scm.sipfoundry.org/rep/sipXportLib/main@500

That compares rev 500 of the main-line development with the contents of tag
2.8-export-L. The output looks OK to me; it starts with this, which
suggests Subversion understands what I'm asking for:

Index: sipXportLib.vcproj
===================================================================
--- sipXportLib.vcproj (.../tags/2.8-export-L) (revision 535)
+++ sipXportLib.vcproj (.../main) (revision 500)
@@ -42,7 +42,8 @@
