You could use #!/bin/sh here.

1.7-specific, relies on implementation details:
`svn info`[Working Copy Root Dir]`/.svn/pristine/`svn info`[SHA-1 checksum]`

1.x-compatible:
use 'svn cat' to obtain a tempfile.

1.8:
we might move to compressed pristines. And if we do, we might provide
a "give me a disk path of the uncompressed file that I can pass to my
diff tool" API.
