You're right, I just tried it - error message along the lines of "X"
isn't in the same repository. Even when I specified two sets of full
svn+ssh URLs. While the "svn help diff" page says:

3. diff OLD-URL[@OLDREV] NEW-URL[@NEWREV]

It doesn't specify that both URLs must be from the same repository. (The
SVN book over at redbean really doesn't discuss that either.)

So you're correct; that is a good advantage for having things in a
single repository. And I'm a bad geek for assuming that the
documentation was hinting at a capability that doesn't exist.
