Diff tag against trunk head

I am using the latest (stable) version on both Linux and WinSlows.

For one of my repositories, I created a daily tag of a diary.


Each morning I svn copy "important_stuff" (HEAD revision) to the tags
area and commit.

In theory, this will be used to easily find what changed day-over-day.
Of course all of this is possible poking through svn logs, but I want
to make this easier.

My question: What is the SVN command to diff a file in a tagged set vs
trunk head?

Fantasy command:
svn diff -r"tag:2010-11-21" -rHEAD /project/trunk/important_stuff/details.txt


svn diff -r"trunk:HEAD" /project/tags/2010-11-21/important_stuff/details.txt

I tried many different svn diff commands. No luck. I also did some
heavy Google/StackOverflow searching. No luck.

Is there a simple way to do this?
Right now I am using regular GNU diff, but this requires everyone to
download the tags to their box locally.

Ideally, this could be done via the trunk or tag URL only.
