The issue is that the commandline option --diff-cmd is documented as
being only the executable, so the config file option is only the
executable (since it shares the same code path). I suspect it would be
easiest to add a new diff-extensions line to the config file (to match
the command line --extensions).

Patches welcome? Compare and contrast how editor works (see svn/util.c)
and diff_cmd (see libsvn_client/diff.c).
