Kdiff3 is similar to meld in some ways, but since it is build directly
on top of KDE, it can use KDE's kioslave architecture to access
subversions tags directly. So you can do compares like (wrapped):

kdiff3 svn+http://myserver.com/svn/repx/tags/rel1

kompare is a similar KDE tool and should be able to do something
similar, but only takes an individual file URL, not dir URLS.

kompare is nice in that it supports piping of diff output into it for
a nice graphical view. Example:

svn diff myfile | kompare -

If only both tools had all the features. :-)
