Correct, I don't think there's a good way to express differences of
binary files... at least not with the standard unix patch format,
which is what svn diff emulates.

You could just copy the new file from the one repository over the old
file in the other repository.

But why do you want to make separate repositories here? Why not just
make a branch in your existing repository? Then you can use svn merge
the way it was intended.
