I don't see how Subversion can determine that one script needs a
terminal while another can use a file, only the user knows that.

It's also hard to fix 1.8, how do we pass the information into the
client library without changing the API?  Perhaps we could recognise a
special part of the command name or a special external parameter, so

   --diff-cmd svn:interactive:myscript


   --diff-cmd myscript -x svn:interactive

gets a terminal while

   --diff-cmd myscript

gets a file.
