from the "~/.subversion/config" I gather you work on some *nix OS,
so this won't help you. However, in TortoiseSVN (for Windows) one
can specify parameters for alternative diff/merge tools in the
settings. I did this to use WinMerge with parameters different from
the default suggestion. And yes, doing this in Subversion conf
would simplify this for use of different clients in parallel.
